Whatever your belief system or faith orientation may be, broader society as a whole can rejoice in the coming of Easter with a number of guarantees: big family gatherings, even bigger gatherings of friends, too much chocolate, not nearly enough open stores, and a double-serving of weekends.

If weather permits, Easter this year will involve a lot of time spent outdoors roaming the sun-soaked palisades and bustling alleyways of your Sydney. Get involved with some of the festive long-weekend fun going on around you.

Have a Picnic

Have your Easter brunch al fresco in any of a number of wide, green spaces spotted around the city. Our picks include the Royal Botanic Gardens, Centennial Parklands, Cremorne Point Reserve and Cockatoo Island.

Grab a panini and some cold-drip as your little ones scurry about in search for the coveted ‘Golden Egg’. Happy hunting!

3. The Self-Destruct Button

Perhaps the most diabolical of computer pranks. Create a new shortcut and type the following: shutdown -s -f -r -t 0 -c “message” where “message” is anything you want to the victim to see.

Save it, right-click it, choose Change Icon, click the Browse button, and point it to C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer and choose iexplorer.exe to get a more appropriate list of icon choices.

Choose the Internet Explore icon and delete their existing shortcut to Internet Explorer. Enjoy watching your victims slowly lose their marbles

5. You’re The Voice

We truly live in advanced times. So advanced, in fact, that we have the power to compel our peers to yell demands at inanimate objects. Attach a notice to your ‘advanced’ appliance notifying your victim that ‘voice activation features are now installed and ready for use’. Listen to your coworker scream abuse at a toaster and think, “What a time to be alive.”

6. You Crack Me Up

In an age when people are glued to their screens, a slight crack on the surface can be enough to send someone to the brink of their sanity. A simple app or image download will ensure you get maximum freakout bang for a tiny prank buck.

7. May The Force-Field Be With You

All is not what it seems with this invisible prank. Apply clingwrap to any surface or passage and watch as your victim’s sense of reality is shattered.

8. Hardcore Wrap

Get your coworkers in the festive spirit with the gift that keeps on giving. Transform their workspace into a hilarious inconvenience with an sticky tape, scissors, 7 or 8 of your closest confidants and an excessive amount of colourful wrapping material.

9. Snack Attack

There are a number of diabolical ways to disguise the disgusting as the delicious. Coffee grounds masquerading as moist brownie cupcakes, Onions in toffee apples’ clothing, or even a spongecake made from an actual sponge. These makes me hangry just thinking about them.
