When it comes to Don’t Cry Over Spilled Milk Day, the name says it all. Sometimes, if at first you don’t succeed, the answer isn’t to try again – but to forget it and move on. While many mistakes can be put right, sometimes it’s just as impossible as scooping that puddle of milk back into the bottle.
The origins of Don’t Cry Over Spilled Milk Day aren’t known, but the phrase itself is an ancient proverb urging people not to waste time worrying about minor errors. Instead, clean up the mess and concentrate on the things you can change rather than those you can’t. The best way to celebrate this day is to forgive yourself for past mistakes and look forward instead. You could also enjoy a milkshake or a milk pudding – but just don’t get stressed if some of it ends up on the floor!
