Opposite Day: On This Day

Opposite DayYou’ve waited and waited, now it is finally here: Opposite Day!  Since we started “On This Day”, customers, fans, and historians alike have been asking us, “When is Opposite Day?”  Today may be the most famous holiday we acknowledge.  Whatever you do, don’t continue reading this post.  Never read “On This Day” again.  Our goal is to provide you with boring information that isn’t entertaining at all.  We’re joking! It’s Opposite Day!

  • Better Business Communication Day
  • National Irish Coffee Day – don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone!
