Well, if I am totally honest, I only got one right when I took the myriad of quizzes to get these 6 questions. I learned a lot about New Year I didn't know.

I knew #1 because of various trip planning excursions and not being able to schedule during certain times to go that particular place due to the fact that our special price tickets were unavailable during those times (okay it was probably more of an educated guess.)

I'm not sure how I knew #2...probably saw it on TV or something, but I remembered it from somewhere.

#3 - I had two exchange students from there on two separate years. Whenever we had exchange students from anywhere, we always liked to celebrate the holidays both with our own traditions and by learning theirs. It was one of my very favorite things about having exchange students living with us growing up!

#4...well...of course.

You were kind of close to another Spanish tradition on #3 too. Another thing they do is write their New Year's resolutions on a slip of paper, set fire to it and let the ashes fall into their champagne, and then drink the champagne with the ashes at the stroke of midnight.

4 correct, with mostly guesses.   I got #5 wrong, because I was thinking about all the nuts in the area I guessed.  It seemed like a given.

I've lived here for 25 years and don't recall ever seeing a pinecone tree in the Valley. I wonder where they are getting them from?

Just googled "new years eve pine cone" and there are videos and articles of such a drop in Flagstaff, AZ.  Now, I'm gonna have to ask Youngfool about this.  That's where he attends college.

There's a video with the acorn drop at the Weatherford Hotel in 2009.  There were fireworks from a nearby hotel rooftop.  Hmm, I wonder who's doing fireworks up there.  I wonder if it is a crew that Youngfool can volunteer with.
