Opposite Day

Date When Held : Event is always January 25

Opposite Day is a topsy, turvy day when everything you say, do, see, and hear are the opposite. If you say go left, you mean go right. If you say look up, it means look down. If you see your left foot...is it really your right?

Yesiree, Bob. Opposite Day can be a whole lot of fun. It can also be very, very confusing. This special day is celebrated primarily among school children. Sponge Bob Square Pants even got into the act, with an episode containing the whimsical nature of this day.

Thought for the Day: Opposites attract.


Origin of Opposite Day:

We have yet to discover who created this day, or the original date of creation. In true "Opposite Day" spirit, you have to look for someone who says "I didn't create this day", and go from there.

References to Opposite Day date back to around 2000. However, we found some casual reference to President Calvin Coolidge in the 1920's. Is it possible that a president said one thing and meant another? 

Some recent writings suggest the first Tuesday of the year. However, older research, points to the 25th. We suspect there may be more than one celebration of Opposite Day.

Oppositte day was mentioned in the book "Alice in Wonderland". This day may originate from the storybook, written inthe 1800's..


Flower of the Day: Ornamental Grass

Recipe of the Day: Roqufort / Blue Cheese Dressing
