Today is National Opposite Day
National Opposite Day is observed annually on January 25th. The origin of National Opposite Day is unknown; however, there are references dating back to President Calvin Coolidge in the 1920′s. In the 1928 election, Coolidge made a statement to the press announcing, “I do not choose to run.” That statement started a debate and left everyone wondering if he really meant the opposite.
National Opposite Day, an unofficial holiday, is a day to have fun all day long saying exactly opposite of what you really mean. Good morning, or is it good night? Hello, or is it goodbye? I am cold, or am I hot? This day has kids rejoicing everywhere. It is also a great day for adults to play along and break out of the winter blues, especially after Storm Jonas! So start getting in the opposite mood and DO NOT celebrate.
