While it is unclear who created this Opposite Day and for what purposes, rumor has it that the unofficial holiday comes from a playground game, where children trick each other by asking silly questions and then reversing the answers.

The holiday is also sometimes called National Opposite Day in the United States.

How Not to Celebrate?

Celebrating Opposite Day is not an easy task - you'll just have to do the opposite of everything you do on any normal day.

  • If you can, why not start the day by ending it – go to bed in the morning and work at night?
  • Have dinner for breakfast and breakfast for dinner.
  • Say right when you mean left and vice versa.
  • Let your family, friends and colleagues know that you are celebrating Opposite Day. Otherwise, it could get very confusing for everyone around you.

Did You Know…

…about the Opposite Day Paradox? Technically, Opposite Day cannot exist. If you say today is Opposite Day, then because of the rules of the game, today would be the opposite of what you just said i.e. not opposite day or a normal day. Instead, if you said it was a normal day, then it would be a normal day.
