Aug25 Fun Holiday – Kiss and Make up Day

August 25 is Kiss and Make Up Day, a day to let go of resentment, grudges, anger, and indignation. The unofficial holiday encourages people to make up and reconcile with anyone they are estranged with - at work, school, or in their family.

Conflict is one of the biggest truths in life. No matter how much we may try, disagreements are a big part of our relationships with others.

Most of the times, these differences can be easily set aside and forgotten. Sometimes, however, arguments and misunderstandings can take an ugly turn, estranging and isolating people from each other.

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?

  • Staying angry with a loved one 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.

...that in many cultures kissing on the cheek is a sign of respect and friendship?
