    Hi!
    I 'd like to understand two ways to accepting apologies:

    1) "We should let bygones be bygones"
    2) "Oh that is all water under the bridge now"

    A litterlly translation doesn't work, so can somebody explain what these two senteces mean?

    Thanks in advance! :D

    Hi! :)

    We have similar expressions:

    1) Ciò che è stato è stato.
    2) Ormai è acqua passata.

    Bye,
    Renminds
