August 25 Kiss and Make Up Day
Let go of resentment, grudges, anger, and indignation. This unofficial holiday encourages people to make up and reconcile with anyone they are estranged with – at work, school, or in their family.
Conflicts happen in life. Disagreements are a big part of our relationships with others. Best friends, friends, families, and co-workers, may all experience them.
Kiss and make up is an English language idiom that means to forgive someone and be friends again with them.
A Second Chance
Kiss and Make Up Day provides a second chance – it is a day to set aside all difference and let people in our lives know that despite all the quarrels and the disagreements, they mean a lot to us.
How to Celebrate?Being angry with a loved one or friend can be harmful not only to a relationship but to one’s own mental and physical health. So, take this day to let go of all the anger and make up with someone you have quarreled with.
