Shed and Shred 2011: Good Riddance Day In Times Square
- jmsaba, CNN iReport producer
On Wednesday December 28, with just days left of the year, New Yorkers and visitors from all around the world were encouraged to "shed and shred their bad memories of 2011 in the Good Riddance Day event in Times Square in New York City.
From politics, to loss of relatives, extra pounds gained, health crisis and bad relationships, many shared their worst moments and situations of the year that's about to end, all to be turned to nothing by a giant paper shredding van.
Someone said good riddance to the Iraq War, someone gave an early one to Newt Gingrich- including an extra "t".
