The year of Jubilee in both the Jewish and Christian traditions is a time of joy, the year of remission or universal pardon. In Mosaic law, each fiftieth year was to be celebrated as a jubilee year, and that at this season every household should recover its absent members, the land return to its former owners, the Hebrew slaves be set free, and debts be remitted (see Jubilee (Biblical)).

It seems there is a natural spiritual time for forgiveness of sins and debts.

Me thinks our society has gone too long without one and one is coming up sort of on it's own spiritual reconnaissance.
