Have your own Good Riddance Day
The folks in charge of the Time Square New Year's Eve Celebration are hoping to start a new annual tradition - Good Riddance Day. On Sunday they invited New Yorkers to bring things that represented bad memories from 2008 i.e. bank statements, stock papers and pictures of old boyfriends or girlfriends and throw them into a giant paper shredder. If you don't live in New York, you can have your own Good Riddance Day with friends. If you don't have a shredder, a trash can will do. Physically getting rid of ugly reminders is a good way to spring into action.
