    Shed and Shred 2011: Good Riddance Day In Times Square


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     sjunat55 shot these photos on December 28 of "Good Riddance Day" in New York City's Times Square, 'where hundreds of people attempted to get rid of their worst moments, memories and situations of 2011,' he said. 'From the war in Iraq (someone decided to shred her husband's deployment papers), to family health problems and loss, to more mundane things, like 45 pounds overweight and bad relationships... people said "good riddance 2011" with a vengeance.'

    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".
