On any other day of the year, Breckenridge Resort looks like any other resort. The slopes are populated with well-dressed, excited, and soberish vacationers, and locals, trying their hardest to have a good time. Today though, April 1, is unlike any other day of the year, not because we play jokes on people, but because on this day locals and tourist unite to celebrate spring, health, and what some refer to as April Fool’s Day. Follow me and I’ll give you a sneak peek of the festivities.
WARNING: April Fool's Day is contagious and not for the serious at heart. If participating: Be prepared to laugh and be amazed... all day long.
What is April Fool's Day?... Is it weather related... Is it a juggernaut... A myth... A not-so-secret gathering... An insult... A celebration... A way to express gratitude... I'll tell you what it is. It's awesome! And that's all. As a follower of April Fool's Day, it seemed like this year only 1% of the inhuman population despised it, while the rest of us, commonly referred to as the other 99%, loved it!
This guy was into it. There's no way this guy is actually playing tennis with another person. Or is there?...
In an effort to blend in and visually project his current disposition, this gentleman eagerly displays his classic style, belief in hygiene, a skills in signifying Peace. The other gentleman, in blue, stared at the peaceful man for what seemed like minutes, only to conclude that there is no conclusion... It's just April Fool's Day.
How about these two? Are they celebrating April Fool's Day, or ripping the park and celebrating spring? Either way, that is cooler than both sides of the pillow.
This guy had everyone fooled.
Looks normal to me.
Look! Another wonderful display of intent. But, not all four of them seem to be fooling around. All FOUR of them??? Look close.
One girl, three guys. This could've been her opportunity?... Only if she wasn't smarter than all three of them...combined.
As the crowd grew larger, it became more difficult to decipher between those celebrating and those just having a good time. For example: At first glance this guy seems to be wearing a costume, which is up for debate, but if you take a closer look, with your eyes, you'll see that the jacket isn't really a jacket, but a long short-sleeved skirt.
After a certain point, I gave up looking for April's Fools and started to watching the masses of people getting off the Gondola dressed for the festivities. There were moms, dads, friends, brothers, kids, babies, tourists... I felt like the 99% had taken over the Resort. It was great! Smiling faces were being shown all over the mountain.
There wasn't anything that was gonna break this guy's stride. There probably wasn't anything that was gonna hold him down. Oh no. He said he just had to kept on moving.
PICTURE OF THE DAY. Look at the girl in the middle, sitting by bird woman. Take note of her facial expression. Next year, I want all of us to laugh that hard and have that much fun... Don't you? See you on April 1, 2013
