Was 2013 a bad year for you? Did you lose a job? a love? a friend or family member? Whatever hit you hard and bad in 2013 can be tossed aside by participating in New York City's Times Square's annual Good Riddance Day! This year (2013) Good Riddance Day takes place tomorrow, Saturday, December 28, 2013. Here's what you'll need to know:

Date: December 28, 2013

Time: Noon - 1 p.m.

Location: Broadway Plazas between 46th – 47th Streets

Simply take a paper, write down your grievance or grievances and hand it back to be part of the enormous pile of complaints, broken hearts, and overall bad things that have happened to people in 2013. And, here's the bonus: An iPad will be awarded to the participant with the most intriguing “good riddance” story. (Only participants who come the day of will be eligible for the prize, but, it's certainly incentive to make your way over to Times Square!)

All papers are shredded afterwards and if you have something that needs breaking, rubber mallets are available. For more information on 2013 Good Riddance Day please visit:

And have a happy, successful and joyous 2014!
