What is Get Over It Day?
GET OVER IT DAY™ is based on the idea that EVERYONE has SOMETHING to get over. Strategically the exact 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 by Jeff Goldblatt (the same guy who started The Rejection Hotline), after it took him a little longer than he'd have liked to finally get over an ex-girlfriend. It then took off nationwide and became a legitimate pop-culture phenomenon when national media outlets like ABC's Good Morning America (see video below) and ESPN's SportsCenter (see video below) announced it to the world!

The Official Get Over It Day Poem
NOBODY is happy, EVERY day of their life,
Not an American Idol®, not a Desperate Housewife®,
Not MVP athletes, not Oscar-winning stars,
Not rich CEOs, not hot chicks at bars.
We ALL have our issues; ALL lives contain stress,
At some point, we're ALL an emotional mess,
Ex-boyfriends, ex-girlfriends, ex-husbands, ex-wives,
There are people to get over in EVERYONE'S lives.
But as much as things suck, as bad as they get,
If you got cheated on, if you're swimming in debt,
If you're aging or balding or get a cold sore,
Don't ever forget: It Could Always Suck More! (603-413-4130)
It's all part of life; it will help you grow stronger,
But this "pity party" of yours can't last any longer,
You can sit home alone, being sad and depressed,
Or you can choose to be strong, and do as we suggest:
March 9th is the day, to finally say:
"Move on! It's done! It's Get Over It Day!"
