Pardon Day

Saturday, September 08, 2012

Pardon Day

When : Always September 8th

Pardon Day is today. Its an opportunity to seek forgiveness where needed.

Today is also a day to say "Pardon Me", or Excuse Me" as appropriate. In today's busy society, too many people race about their lives, forgetting the small courtesies in life. Among the easiest things to let slip by, is etiquette.

Use Pardon Day to reaffirm your manners. Say "Pardon Me" or "Excuse Me" as appropriate. People will like you more. And, your mom will be so proud!

You can also use this day to seek pardon or forgiveness for mistakes and grievances you have committed. Take the opportunity to clean the slate and start anew.

Origin of Pardon Day:
The roots of this day go back to September 8, 1974. On this day, newly installed President Gerald Ford issued a Presidential Proclamation pardoning President Richard M. Nixon of any wrong doing related to the Watergate scandal.

    Thankfully I was outside most of this morning after I had a breakfast that had loads of fiber in, hence I was pretty darn "gassy". Had I been inside, I would have been using "pardon me" a lot!!
