Say good riddance to every bad thing that happened this year.

That’s what hundreds of people did in New York City’s Times Square Friday, shredding everything they wanted to get rid of in 2018.

The 12th annual event lets people write down everything they want don’t want to bring with them into the new year.  A giant truck equipped with a shredder was on hand to grind up the bad memories.

"So much of it is about celebration, so much is about new resolutions. But it's also about letting go of the things from the last year that haven't been so good for us. Or for the world,” said one shredder.

Another called for love, positivity and kindness in 2019.
