Give yourself a second chance on Mulligan Day. Whether it is a former relationship with a friend or loved one, an old hobby that you abandoned or a past mistake that needs rectifying, you can give it another go on Mulligan Day.

Commonly used in games such as golf, the term ‘mulligan’ derives from the 1920s when Canadian golfer David Mulligan made a mistake during a game and retook his shot. Since then, to ‘call a mulligan’ means the chance to try again.

So, celebrate Mulligan Day by giving yourself another chance to do something that previously went wrong. Golf courses will usually hold a Mulligan Day celebration where golfers can play again for free at a later date. You could also join in by making Mulligan Stew which is a ‘second-chance’ meal made from the leftovers of previous meals.
