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.
