National Opposite Day
Today is National Opposite Day!
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!
Sponge Bob Square Pants even got into the act, with an episode containing the whimsical nature of this day.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Do the opposite of what you mean and use #NationalOppositeDay to post on social media.
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.
