September 8 is Pardon Day!
If you’ve been worrying about past mistakes, today is the day to seek forgiveness from whomever you have wronged. Get your grievances off your chest and start with a clean slate, no matter how much you may have to swallow your pride.
Alternately, you can use today as an exercise in manners and say “Excuse Me”, “Please” and “Thank You” whenever appropriate.
This holiday originates from the original pardon day on September 8, 1974 when Gerald Ford gave the Presidential Pardon to the former Commander in Chief, Richard Nixon.
