Opposite day is January 25th. It’s celebrated on January 25th because that was the date when, in 1996, it is believed that a typo of ‘Januarius’ (the Latin version of January) resulted in the brain-fart phrase, ‘Opposite January 25th’. Following this event people began to celebrate opposite day every year.
In order to celebrate Opposite Day you must do everything the opposite of what you would normally do – for example, if someone touches your left elbow when you’re talking to them, say ‘thanks!’ rather than ‘ew! don’t touch me.’ It’s all about doing things backwards.
We decided to put together a free little printable packet to help you and your kids celebrate!
