Celebrating Backwards Day

(Google Image)
By Diane Forrest

Well the first month of the year has come to an end.  All the fun and parties from Christmas and New Years are over, and it’s time to shake things ups a bit.  That's why today is a fun day.  Today is Backwards Day.  It’s particularly fun for school kids, but that doesn’t mean the grownups can't have a little fun too.

Some ways to celebrate include wearing your clothes backwards, eating your meals backwards, having breakfast for dinner, or eating your dessert first.  You can walk around the block backwards, or write your name backwards.  Learn to say the alphabet backwards, or make a pineapple upside down cake.

You can read a book to a child backwards, or play a board game backwards or learn some palindromes.  The ideas are only as limited as your own imagination.  My personal favorite is changing stressed to desserts.....then eating dessert first!

Below are some palindromes from you can start with. Then share some of yours with us.

Palindromes are words, phrases or sentences that read the same forward and backward! Here are a few to get you started!

1. Kayak
2. Racecar
3. Never odd or even
4. Do geese see God?
5. A Toyota
6. Was it Eliot's toilet I saw?
7. A nut for a jar of tuna
8. Aerate pet area.
9. Dennis sinned.
10. Madame, not one man is selfless; I name not one, madam.
