National Backward Day

When : Always January 31st

Backward Day is a day to do everything backwards. Use your imagination, and Backward Day can be lots of fun. It's especially popular with school aged kids.

Try writing backwards or reading backwards. Wear your shirt with the back in the front. Eat your meal, starting with dessert. Now that's what I call fun! Walk backwards, or talk backwards. Play a board game backwards, from the finish line to the start. Are you starting to get the picture!?
This day is limited only by your imagination.
Origin of Backward Day:

Our research has yet to find the creator, or the origin of this day.

I've not been able to master talking backwards, walking backwards is dangerous (for me at least - I have trouble walking forwrd) Writing backward isn't too difficult but takes some concentration.   .concentration some takes but difficult too isn't backward Writing.   Okay that wasn't even what I'd call fun.  I guess my favorite one is eating backwards. I bet the kids would love that one. It might be fun to play a game backwards.

Roseanne, sure shakes up the imagination in fact, It's humbling to know how limited humans can be.

Thanks for the outside the box thinking.

I have to go to work later today...maybe I'll walk backwards at my retail job? That would sure confuse the customers!
