Opposite Day By : RaNay Casper I am writing this … or not . National Opposite Day is an unofficial holiday , but it is a day to have fun all day long saying exactly opposite of what a person really means . On this day , kids will be rejoicing everywhere . It is also a great day for adults to play along and break out of the winter blues . Some examples of fun you could have on opposite day include : hello , or is it goodbye ? I am cold , or am I hot ? Good morning , or is it good night ? Some people believed that National Opposite Day is observed on January 25th , while some believe that it is the 7th of January , and some people eve like to believe it is supposed to be celebrated on the 25th of each month ! Whenever you celebrate opposite day , I hope you have a very not-fun day !
