January 25: Opposite Day

January 25 is Opposite Day! Oh no, wait… I meant it’s NOT Opposite Day … it is … oh well, it’s Opposite Day everyone. You now have official permission to act like a six year old, telling everyone the opposite of what you mean and laughing hysterically when they get confused.

“Moreover, when God gives any man wealth and possessions, and enables him to enjoy them, to accept his lot and be happy in his work—this is a gift of God.”

Ecclesiastes 5:19

But all I said was “You are the ugliest woman I ever saw and I don’t want to go out with you.” Doesn’t she know it’s opposite day?

*update: I originally posted this as a January 24th holiday, but most people celebrate Opposite Day on January 25. Although a few celebrate on the 24th, I’ve updated the post to reflect the more popular date.. I didn’t realize a holiday this confusing could get even more confusing!


January 24: Compliment Day,

Since 1998, January 24 has been celebrated as Compliment Day. Your goal for today is simple: compliment (sincerely!) as many people as you can. (Telling people “thank you” for very specific things can get you bonus points too.)

Pleasant words are a honeycomb,

    sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

Proverbs 16:24
