National Opposite Day is celebrated on January 25 of every year. It is an unofficial holiday when every action is modified so that the meaning is negated. The children commonly celebrate the day, and rarely does it last for the entire day. The reason for creating the day is still unknown, and some of them say it comes from the playground game. The children commonly celebrate the day by asking silly questions to each other and reversing the answers. Hence it is a perfect day to celebrate by doing everything in the wrong way.

Clock Measurement is not time itself. In fact, so opposed are they that one could argue the clock is not a synonym, but the opposite of time.” – Jay Griffiths

History of National Opposite Day

The inventor or creator of this day is still unknown. But some of them said that President Calvin Coolidge 1920 introduced the Day.  He made a statement to the press by announcing that “I do not choose to run” in the 1928 election. This statement caused a debate among the people and left them wondering what he meant by the opposite. Another leading discussion on National Opposite Day is that some of the sources said that the Day should be observed on January 25, while some of them stated that it would be celebrated on January 7. However, some of them celebrate National Opposite Day on the 25th of every month. The Day has shown up in different forms of media, from Spongebob Squarepants to Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy. The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy celebrated the madness of the day, and they tried to remain balanced throughout the day, while Spongebob Squarepants uses the nature of the day to prevent the neighbors from stopping the sale of his house.
