2020 has been a year, right? Well, we have some good news—today is Good Riddance day! This annual tradition was started in 2007 in New York City, but it is rooted in an old Latin American tradition. The concept is simple, but genius: Gather all of the bad parts of the past year, stuff them into a doll and get rid of them. Now, traditionally this would mean burning them, but we don’t encourage that (seriously, don’t start burning things) so our version is a little less spectacular, but still effective.
Write down the negativity or lower parts of the year. And yes, we admit there may have been many this year, but hey, we’re all in this together, right? So, write them down, then shred the paper or simply crumble it up and “toss out” your worries.
We hope that if you do decide to participate in this tradition, you also take the time to acknowledge all the good that happened this year—more time with family, more time to walk, more time to practice making bread, etc.
Wishing you all the best in 2021!! Cheers to you!
