TIMES SQUARE, Manhattan (WABC) -- Thursday was the day to say "good riddance to bad rubbish," and start the new year fresh.
People were invited to let go of any bad memories from 2017 in Times Square for the annual "Good Riddance Day" event.
People were encouraged to write down whatever they're letting go of for 2018 on a piece of paper -- and then send it through a giant shredder.
It's an annual tradition, now in its 10th year.
