Because Mended Fences Are Better Than Broken Ones
Today is Reconciliation Day, a holiday started by noted advice columnist Ann Landers for the purpose of mending old fences. I find the timing to be particularly apt given all the ill-feelings that might have arose from the previous day's pranks. The intention of the holiday is actually rather serious -- to provide an opportunity for people to re-establish broken relationships between family, friends and significant others.
As cliché as they may be, cards, chocolates and flowers are traditionally quite effective at performing this task. Just be warned that attempts to reconcile with estranged loved ones can have varying degrees of success -- you do so at your own peril.
