GET OVER IT DAY® is based on the idea that EVERYONE has SOMETHING to get over. Strategically the midpoint between Valentine’s Day and April Fool’s Day, Get Over It Day (March 9) is the day to finally get over that ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend, those stressful school- or work-related issues, any fears, insecurities, embarrassing moments, bad relationships, etc. [Editor’s Note: If you’re not sure what YOU have to get over, just ask your friends what they’re tired of hearing you complain about.]
Get Over It Day was conceived several years ago by an Atlanta-based entrepreneur after it took him a little longer than he’d have liked to finally get over an ex-girlfriend. He realized it was a concept that many could relate to and the “Get Over It Day” concept took off virally and became a legitimate pop-culture phenomenon when national media outlets like ABC’s Good Morning America (video below) and ESPN’s SportsCenter (video below) announced it to the world!
