Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always April 2
Reconciliation Day is a special day to patch relationships and to make amends. It's intention is to re-establish relationships between family, friends and couples. Life is too short to hold a grudge between those we love.
Estranged couples may find today to be an opportunity to work out their problems. People who have had a "falling out" with family members are encouraged to reach out and "mend the fence".
For those considering a reconciliation, the old saying is "It's never too late". But, that is not true. Someday, it could be too late. So, please use today to begin your reconciliation.
