National Flip a Coin Day

Spread the love

Have you ever had to make a choice and just used a coin to help make that decision? Did you know there is a day dedicated just for this day? June 1st is National Flip a Coin Day.

The notion of flipping a coin dates all the way back to Julius Caesar. He would flip a coin when he could not make a clear choice, and of course his coin had a picture of himself on it. The “right” answer was always “heads”.

So as a family, take today and use a coin to help make any of your decisions through the day and have fun! Make sure to post to #PLYMCAnywhere of your family flipping coins to decide on activities.
