Custom first April joke to fool friends or acquaintances already existed in antiquity. Who started it, is unknown, but there is an assumption that April fool's jokes came to us from the Romans.
In Russia April fools prank appeared during the reign of Peter 1, which was very keen to different drawings. The king paid much attention to the "fiery fun" - the fireworks and illuminations.
As at midnight on the first of April, St. Petersburg saw a huge glow over the Imperial garden. Rose alarm: beat the alarm, beat the drums.. Those who came to the scene of the fire, were, however, very surprised.
Guards that surrounded the fire place, quietly and walked to the interested questions: "What is burning?", answered, saying, today is the last day of March, and the fire, arranged according to the order of Peter 1, is nothing but an ordinary joke.
