Apparently the Japan Anniversary Association thinks people don’t repent enough. The association has actually designated December 10th as ‘Sorry Day,’ which encourages you to apologize—sincerely—for anything for which you’re regretful.

Though not an official holiday, according to their website, the Japan Anniversary Association’s ‘Sorry Day’ (or Gomennne no hi) was created to preserve and promote Japanese culture. In Japan, it’s common for people to apologize quickly for the slightest thing. "Pigging out on all the steak at a family dinner" is one example, according to InventorSpot.
