As the first month of 2023 comes to an end, let’s mix things up! How about celebrating Backwards Day? Like so many of these whacky “holidays,” I have no idea how Backwards Day started or who started it, and until yesterday, I hadn't even heard of it. That being said, Backwards Day spoke to me.
Fun Fact: did you know that when I hand stamp many of my jewelry designs, I stamp the text backward? It’s easier for me to space things out. I also often read magazines starting from the back…no idea why. I guess I sort of celebrate Backwards Day all the time!
I remember a commercial for that famous restaurant with golden arches where they listed the ingredients of a burger backwards and I had to memorize it. Yes, I can still do it…bun seed sesame a on onions pickles cheese lettuce sauce special patties beef all two. Wow, that goes back a ways! I should probably be using that brain space for something else, don't you think?
Some fun ways to celebrate Backwards Day:
Here's another Fun Fact: Penguins can’t walk backward! Those adorable, flightless, tuxedo-wearing birds are always moving forward. Good for them!
I do have a question for you...is it backward or backwards?
