The last time it happened was in 1956, so many people made the most of this year's Easter Sunday falling on April Fool's Day.

Parents took to fooling their children by disguising fruit and vegetables as chocolate treats.

Grapes in sweet foils and Brussels sprouts covered in chocolate were just some of the images being shared online.

Staging an egg hunt with no eggs also seemed a popular choice among prankster parents.
