Fun Holiday – Backwards Day
Bored with doing the same thing in and out? On January 31, take a break from the rut by doing everything backwards, because it is Backwards Day.
While it is unclear who created this holiday, it is evident that they wanted it to be a day for celebrators to break all rules and to do things their way.
A popular fun holiday among school going children, it is also sometimes called National Backwards Day in the United States.
How to Celebrate?
Celebrating Backwards Day is easy—do everything backwards or sdrawkcab.
- Wear your outfit backwards and if you can, talk and write backwards.
- Go to bed in the morning and start working in the evening, have dinner in the morning and breakfast in the evening, and have dessert first during all your meals.
- Talk to people with your back towards them. Just make sure you let them know you are celebrating Backwards Day, so they don't think you are rude.
- Say goodbye to people when you meet them, and hello when you depart.
