National Get Out of the Dog House Day

National Get Out of the Dog House Day is a day when you can apologize and make amends to another person. Americans are very familiar with the expression ‘in the doghouse’; it is often used when they want to say that they offended or angered someone. Obviously, being ‘in the doghouse’ is unpleasant, so National Get Out of the Dog House Day was invented to correct the situation and improve relationships. It is celebrated on the third Monday in July.

History

National Get Out of the Dog House Day was created in 1999 by Florida-based Heidi Richards. Her husband was guilty of something, and Heidi came up with a way to reconcile. The holiday has spread throughout the country, but if you offended someone and the situation bothers you, do not wait for July 15. Fix it immediately.

How to make peace with a person – tips that will definitely help:

  • If you have a fight with your loved one, plan a date, cook dinner, or give flowers.
  • If you struggle to apologize to a person, write a letter saying how sorry you are, and that you miss them.

How to Take Part

Obviously, this day is the time to ask for forgiveness and to forgive, depending on which side of the situation you are on. We strongly recommend devoting a day to in-person communication, rather than telephone conversations and online correspondence.
