(CNN) -

Wednesday is Good Riddance Day.

So say bye-bye to whatever it is that made you blue in 2011.

Whether it's a bad memory... a parking ticket... an old Valentine's Day card.

It's time to say "good riddance!"

It's all happening today in New York in Times Square.

And if you can't make it--don't worry... you can submit your worst memory from 2011 online.

Its founders say the 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.
