September 8 is designated as Pardon Day. What exactly brought upon having a Pardon Day? We have to go back to the year 1974. The world becomes privy to the fact that President Richard Nixon did partake in illegal activities and then tried to cover it up. President Nixon later resigned and Vice President Gerald R. Ford became President.
Then, on September 8, 1974, President Ford did pardon former President Nixon of all illegal activity while in office – also known as Watergate. The pardon offered means President Nixon cannot ever be tried for his illegal activities while in office – free and clear.
So, how should you celebrate the day? We think you should celebrate by playing one of our Pardon songs! What makes them so special? Well. each pardon song has the word pardon in the song title.

What exactly does pardon mean? To pardon someone, such as President Nixon, means to forgive or excuse all illegal activities. So, when a person is walking by another person in small confinements, it is proper etiquette to say “Pardon Me” – also meaning excuse me.
