January 25th Opposite Day

Today is the one day of the year you can say what you mean and not mean it at all! It can also be a very dangerous day if the person you are interacting with is not aware it is opposite day. If you say that you don’t love someone, if the person is aware it’s opposite day they know you love them, but if they don’t… watch out!


Some say that opposite day was created during Calvin Coolidge’s administration in the 1920’s. Some people in the Country felt they were getting rich, but we all know they were about to lose all in the 1930’s. Some felt Coolidge was a good president, or did they?


Other say that opposite day came from Lewis Carroll’s “Alice In Wonderland”. Obviously things in the underworld were different, but were they really opposite? Of course, Lewis Carroll wasn’t really Lewis Carroll, he was really Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. The other male members of his family were nearly all military officers in the British army but he became a children’s book writer. However, if you actually read the book, was it written for children at all!?!


How it came sbout doesn’t really matter… Or does it? Because it is one more day for ys to cellebrate silliness!

How to celebrate – Don’t celebrate opposite day! Don’t enjoy the day! and by all means DON’T have any fun today (Ha, ha…you see what I did there).

  1. Could you please tell me where the words ‘opposite day’ can be found in Alice in Wonderland? The complete text is available in the Gutenberg Project, but I can’t find it in there. Perhaps you can help.
