Can you believe it? January 31st is another one of those wacky or bizarre holidays. One you won’t find on your calendar, by any means but celebrated by some people all the same. You really can find one for every single day of the month. Backwards Day…Do everything backwards, is it possible? Of course it isn’t, but you all knew that. It may be fun or amusing to do a few things backwards just to give it a whirl.
Walk backwards? Not for me, I would be running into things or falling all over the place! Come on, who can walk backwards gracefully? Talk backwards? My brain couldn’t process that one I’m afraid. Everything would come out complete gibberish, wonder if anyone can possibly do that? Write backwards? Maybe one word, I wouldn’t want to try for a whole sentence. I once saw a movie when the guy wrote the woman’s name he was trying to win over backwards on a wall. How romantic, show off a hidden talent for his love, that was in a movie though! I believe it was said the actor had the talent of writing backwards…Well, maybe. That could have been highly exaggerated for publicity’s sake, how would we know? Wear your shirt backwards? No, just so not a good fashion statement!
It seems to me this said holiday is aimed for young children, they would find all these things fun. What about our inner child getting out there for Backwards Day? Not for me, I am not risking life, limb and sanity…My inner child is staying put for Backwards Day! She isn’t talking me into it, no way! I ask Autumn if she was going to try a backwards thing, she laughed! I take that as a definite No. So there we have it Backwards Day is here…Anybody going to give this backwards thing a whirl? If so, please do share! 🙂 😉
It is a very cute blog, Gabs 🙂 I wonder if any kids tried this out ? TF ❤ =Twins Forever
Thanks Twinnie, I love these quirky holidays! 🙂 Hoping somebody tried it out, maybe some kids…Or those grownups who want to live dangerously and let their inner child out to play! 😉 TF <3=Twins Forever
I will do this one thing for backwards day, for my inner child as you say, then she’ll go in for play and I on where I may. God bless you for all your wonderful posts you twinnies you!-Ashleigh
ps, thank you Autumn for the poem about the wonderful ways your husband nestles your inner child, I think it was called, “You call me Sunshine”. You both are such a blessing.

Thank you Tammy, I was glad I found Backwards Day to share. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by to visit! 🙂
A heck I missed it~ I don’t think I ever heard of backwards day!
Sorry to hear you missed it Chris, but there are more fun days coming up! 🙂 I love looking for the obscure and unusual holidays, they are so much fun to share. 🙂
I swear backwards day occurs at least 12 times a years: I get paid on the first, and I am broke by the 31!
Lol, I can sure identify with you John! 🙂 Backwards Day should maybe be celebrated more often…Or we can silently celebrate! 🙂 What a fun comment, thanks for popping in to visit and I need to get over to your blog very soon! 🙂
Amazing the things people think of, isn’t it? I love it!
It is amazing what people do come up with, glad you loved it! 🙂 Every single day it is some bizarre holiday, even if it’s not marked on the calendar so stay tuned and I will keep you up to date and informed! 🙂 Hope all is well with you, I promise to get over to your blog soon! 🙂
I have seen some of the holidays, they can be quite bizarre! Heheh Makes it all the more fun to read about any of them. I hope you post more! I would like to read about them.
I know they can be really bizarre and unusual these holidays! They are fun though, I will be posting a few of them a month. Thanks so much for your kind words! 🙂
