Good Riddance Day (Times Square, New York)

       "On December 28, say goodbye to your worst memory from 2012 once and for all on Good Riddance Day.
        Whether you're bidding farewell to pink slips or parking tickets, credit cards or Valentine's Day cards, your bad memories from 2012 will be destroyed, never to be seen again. A Cintas secure, mobile shredding truck along with a dumpster and sledgehammer were on hand to discard any distasteful, embarrassing and downright depressing memories from 2012.
         Good Riddance Day is inspired by a Latin American tradition in which New Year’s revelers put artifacts from the previous year into giant dolls and set them on fire.
