April Fool's Day occurs on April 1st every year.

In every year other than 2015, the main page had this message:

Congratulations! You are winner! Ha ha ha! You've just won an ... April Fools! Sorry, you haven't won anything.


In 2015, as April Fool's Day coincided with the Echo of Downtown event, the message was

Congratulations! You are winner! Ha ha ha! You've just won a rip in spacetime. April Fools!


In 2018, as April Fool's Day coincided with Easter, if you found the Chocolate Bunny, the message became

Congratulations! You are winner! Ha ha ha! You've just won an ... April Fools! Seriously, though, it's over towards <location>.
