Today is National Opposite Day! Maybe the best way to celebrate is to ignore it completely, because that’s the opposite of what you’d usually do for a holiday, right?

Or instead of ignoring it, you could walk in reverse all day, or eat breakfast for dinner, or put your clothes on backwards, there’s a lot you could do!


National Opposite Day is observed annually on January 25th.

Good morning, or is it good night? Hello, or is it goodbye? I am cold, or am I hot?

National Opposite Day is a day to have fun all day long saying exactly opposite of what you really mean. This day has kids rejoicing everywhere. It is also a great day for adults to play along and break out of the winter blues. Maybe we should have dinner for breakfast and breakfast for dinner!

Most sources say that National Opposite Day is always observed on January 25th while other sources say it is celebrated by some on January 7th. It is also believed to be celebrated by a group of people on the 25th of each month of the year.


The origin of National Opposite Day is unknown. However, there are references dating back to President Calvin Coolidge in the 1920s. In the 1928 election, Coolidge made a statement to the press announcing, “I do not choose to run.”  That statement spurred a debate and left everyone wondering if he really meant the opposite.
