31 January - Backward Day
So “backward” is the more American choice, and “backwards” is the more British choice, but you will find both in both languages. The way I remember that “backward” is the word in American English, is to remind myself that Americans like shortcuts.
Backwards Day was created by two women in 1961, Sarah Nicole Miller and Megan Emily Scott, who came up with the idea while on a farm. They were milking cows, thinking about arts and crafts when the initial idea came to them.
On January 31, take a break from the rut by doing everything backwards, because it is Backwards Day.
