Backwards Day is celebrated on January 31st to encourage us to do things in reverse and have fun doing it. Sometimes it helps to ignore the rule book and look at things from a different perspective. Did you know that artist and inventor, Leonardo da Vinci, wrote backward? Why not spice things up and have a slice of pizza for breakfast or go to work in your pajamas?

Back in 1961, Megan Emily Scott and Sarah Nicole Miller conceived the idea of Backwards Day while on a farm milking cows. Later that evening, the duo sat down and wrote down some rules. The idea got out shortly after and reached all of the people in town. As they were walking around town two days later, they noticed people were doing things backward.

How to Celebrate Backwards Day

There are many ways to celebrate this day, so let your imagination run wild! Answer phone calls with “Goodbye” instead of “Hello,” wear your clothes inside out, write an entire sentence backward, or start your day with dinner and end it with breakfast. Spend the day finding new ways to do things in reverse. Spread the fun and get other people involved this year on #BackwardsDay
