When is Flip a Coin Day? This holiday is always celebrated on June 1

Need to make a decision, but you don’t know how to decide? Flip a Coin and the answer becomes clear. Today is Flip a Coin Day. Don’t be flippant about this June 1 holiday. It’s the real deal. It’s a day when making decisions is as easy as flipping a coin. We can make both big and small decisions this way. Go ahead, give it a try. The coin toss will always give you the right answer.

This tradition dates back to Julius Caesar. Caesar would take a coin and flip it to make decisions where the right choice was unclear. The correct answer was “heads”, which of course carried his image on the coin.

You can flip a coin to decide on practically any “either-or” question in your life. Mathematically, when you flip a coin, 50% of the time it will land on “heads”. And, 50% of the time, it will come out “tails”.  It’s simple statistics. If you don’t like the decision, will you try for the best two out of three?
