Most experts agree that National Opposite Day is observed on January 25th, but other experts claim it is celebrated on January 7th. Still others believe that it is to be celebrated every month of the year on the 25th day.
Is it National Opposite Day? Is it not Opposite Day? Or is it not not Opposite Day? Now even I am confused. Either way children across the country rejoice in this day as they declare they mean the opposite of whatever they say. I would love to do the dishes! Broccoli is my favorite food! I didn’t push my brother in the mud! Here is a serious question… What is the opposite of Opposite Day?
National Opposite Day Activities
1. Call in Sick For Work, Then Show Up Anyway
Your boss will be confused for a minute, then it will dawn on them. Plus you shouldn't lose your job for this one, nor should you lose one of your sick days.
2. Say Goodbye When Greeting People
The confusion on their faces will be worth it. If you pair this with the number one on our list, it will only get better.
3. Don't Do Anything for Opposite Day
Saying it's Opposite Day negates that it is opposite day. So don't do anything for opposite, but know in your heart that it really is National Opposite Day.
