Despite the global pandemic taking place April Fool’s Day has not been canceled. At least not as far as the Trickster The April Fool is concerned. He is out in full force to not only paranormally prank people for his own amusement and stoke the Spirit Of Merriment but also to take people’s minds off their current woes. People cooped up in their homes need humor more than ever now! His pranks on us here at Mystic Investigations and others in the supernatural world are more pronounced. With the average person it may be more low key or done in a way to make things look coincidental as per The Supernatural Secrecy Pact. Still, people have reported hearing random giggling manifesting from thin air or even a guy in a jesters costume running about with glorious glee.🃏
April Fool’s Day isn’t just a time of pranks and jokes confined to human instigators. There are magical forces at work sparking supernatural shenanigans. The April Fool is the official supernatural leader of April Fool’s Day. He appears to be a jocular jester personally pranking those he feels needs to be taken down a peg or two. Sometimes it’s merely an individual who may be a bit too righteous and requires some enhanced embarrassment. He has a variety of paranormal powers that allow him to accomplish his hopefully harmless habits of perpetually pranking people amid loony laughter and goofy giggling. This happy harlequin is known to become quite malicious when dealing with egregiously evil individuals or those who lash out in anger. It’s always best to laugh off his jokes and learn a lesson from them. Sometimes it’s as simple as learning to laugh at yourself and not let an over-inflated ego guide you through life.
The Origin Of April Fool’s Day
The Fantastical Fool is known to be a Trickster by proxy through the power of the Norse Trickster God Loki. The real Loki is not very much like the Marvel movie character. Sometime in the 16th century, he began planting the sub-conscious seeds in humankind for the formation of a Fools Day. A day to teach unruly humans a lesson through tricks and pranks. A time to let ones own mischievous merriment loose upon the world while relishing in the amusement of witnessing embarrassment. The ultimate purpose was to create a Holiday Spirit that would grant Loki more power. That day become April Fool’s Day as we know it today.
How Are April Fool’s Chosen?
As April 1st took shape Loki decided to install an Earthly emissary to directly preside over the holiday. If he did so himself it would have drawn disapproval from more powerful Gods and those who were after him for his past transgressions. So he created The April Fool! He hand-picked the original April Fool centuries ago but thereafter the Fool picks his successor every 7 years. The Foolish Fool is formerly a human who loves jokes, pranks, merry mischief, and a sense of comical justice. After his silly service, The Funny Fool returns to being a human. Although he retains some of his powers to a limited extent along with living an exceptionally healthy life well into the mid-100’s. It is said when Fool’s die they go to an especially jovial afterlife created in the Underworld by Loki. Thus far there have only been male fools but it’s only a matter of time before a funny female takes the title of April absurdity.
The Perplexing Powers Of The April Fool
The crazy clown of April has super strength, speed, agility, and otherworldly senses that fall somewhere at about half that of a Demigod. This is courtesy of Loki and The Spirit Of April Fool’s Day that is intertwined with The Spirit Of Joviality. Like all holiday leaders or even Practitioners Of Magic, the Fool can draw upon the metaphysical energy of said Spirit. He has psychic abilities that include mind reading and hypnosis. This allows him to locate various victims deserving of his drollery. However, Loki telepathically sends him his own choices as well.
The April Fool’s Abilities Are No Laughing Matter
It was once thought there was more than one Fool as once since he would appear in multiple places around the world simultaneously on April Fools. We now know that time works differently for him which indicates Chronokinetic abilities. April Fool’s Day is the equivalent of 365 days for the jolly jester. This gives him all the time in the world to teleport about the globe pranking everyone he pleases. At the end of any given years April 1st he is thrust to the next years. In essence, the April Fool is at work for 7 years non-stop. Thankfully, he requires no sleep nor any sustenance as well. The April Fool is extremely humorous, intelligent and cunning in his prank preparations. He has a plethora of magical powers that include invisibility and warping reality to see his wacky ways come to funny fruition.
How To Repel The April Fool
You have nothing to fear from him but prepare to be prolifically pranked on April Fools Day. He chooses both the righteous and wicked to transmit his titanic tomfoolery upon! Depending on how they handle it they will either have good or bad luck for the entire month of April. If you are a good sport you’ll get good luck but if you get agitated you’ll have bad luck. If you’re easily embarrassed then try very hard to grin and bear it. Still, there is a possible way to not play the Fools game if you’re in the supernatural know. Mother Nature always provides some way for humans to defend themselves from paranormal perplexities. The only known repellent for the April Fool is the Harlequin Flower, aka Sparaxis tricolor. The Sparaxis grandiflora variety has also shown some promise. Plant the flowers around your home, display inside, and wear them on your clothes. A perfume or cologne made of the Harlequin flower or an essential oil of Harlequin may also act as a deterrent. Crushing the flowers, and mixing them with holy water may be a possible weapon against the fool if you’re a big enough party pooper. Unfortunately, this isn’t a guaranteed deterrent if the Fool is determined to get you. We also know that particularly powerful practitioner’s of magic can avoid his hilarious hijinks. Some even sit in a supernaturally sealed or spell protected room for the entire 24 hours of April Fool’s Day!
The only known recording of The April Fool when he pranked us here at Mystic Investigations!
On April 1st, 2018 we were cautious while enjoying Easter Sunday festivities as it was also April Fool’s Day. Especially after we had issued an April Fools Easter Alert the day before! On April 1st we generally garner the honor of a visit from The April Fool himself. He’s a prolific paranormal prankster who enjoys embarrassing people whether they simply be supernaturally relevant or pompous asses. In our case hopefully, it’s Mystic Investigations legendary status in the supernatural community. Usually, the Fool mildly vandalizes our website with his goofy content along with personally pranking us. I remember that time he literally turned me into a helium balloon and I floated out the window! It was a shocking and surreal experience! On the lower end of the joke scale, he enjoys teleporting people into crowded area’s completely naked! Our resident demi-mermaidwitchRebecca Abernathy once stepped out of the shower and she was suddenly on Main Street devoid of even a towel! Read The Rest On Our Supernatural Story Blog…
