Sporcle Holiday Quizzes of the Week: New Year’s Edition/Sporcle Contest Part 5

The end (of 2017) is nigh, as New Year's Day quickly approaches. But we've still got two more Holiday Quizzes of the Week episodes for you, and this week's focuses on the New Year!

1- Famous People on New Year's Eve
This tests your pop culture and celebrity knowledge more than anything, but that may be good for some holiday knowledge-challenged quiz takers out there. There's plenty of big names, as well as ones that have firmly established themselves as part of many people's New Year's Eve traditions. Many host (or hosted) annual New Year's specials. And some are Stevie Nicks.

2- Cities Celebrating New Year's Eve
This is horribly difficult, and I did terrible, but at least the pictures are pretty. It's still a fun quiz though, despite needing to resort to guessing on a large majority of these (I entered Tokyo for just about all of them except the one where Tokyo was the answer). Even if you do terrible like me, just take a look at all of the pictures. They're breathtaking.
My Score: 12/25

3- Does It Drop on New Year's?
Why are some of these things traditions? That's the question I asked myself after playing this one, and I don't think anyone can truly answer it. Some stuff really is just too weird to make up, and some stuff is just too normal to actually drop on New Year's Eve. Also, Pennsylvania and North Carolina seem to be really big fans of the holiday, since most of these take place there.
My Score: 15/30

4- New Year's Eve Movies
This is a pretty fun one, even though you probably don't even realize that most of these take place on the holiday. I know I didn't, but I knew a surprising amount of them considering that I've barely seen any, but I guess that's a side effect of Sporcle. Though I am offended by the use of 'Poseidon' rather than 'The Poseidon Adventure,' but what are you gonna do?
My Score: 18/20

5- Chinese New Year Animal Click
I don't know very much about Chinese New Year, but I know a lot about pop culture, and if you do too, you'll do very well at this one. It's less about the holiday than identifying the species of famous animals, but it's still very fun.
My Score: 21/24
