Something to try on the new year

From Thomas Friedman's book, "From Beirut to Jerusalem".
Before Yom Kippur every year, Shaul the bartender and I and a few other people go sit on Dizengoff Street and we drink beer and eat hummus, and as people come by - if we know them and, as we get progressively drunker, even if we don't know them - we stop them and say, 'If I did something wrong to offend you this year, I apologize. Please, forgive me.' It's great fun and people smile and laugh and say, 'Yeah, me too, brother. Forgive me, too,' and they just walk along.

Want to try this in general...
