History and Origin of Get Over It Day

This special, uplifting holiday was created in 2005 by Jeff Goldblatt. Jeff is an entrepreneur, residing in Atlanta, Georgia. Goldblatt conceived this day, as he was struggling to get over a romantic breakup. He felt a special day was needed to “get over it”, a day that would help him and others.

The date of March 9 was chosen to celebrate Get Over It Day, as this date is strategically located between Valentine’s Day and April Fool’s Day. As we reflect upon when is Get Over It Day, we realize this is as good a date as any. However, we also believe any day is a good time to let go of something that is weighing you down.

There are several recent references to this as a National Get Over It Day. This is incorrect, as the creator calls it “Get Over It Day” on his website. We found no presidential proclamation or act of Congress making this a national day.
