New Year's Eve Quotations

|New Year's Eve is upon us. Here is a quiz comprised of quotations on the subject of this celebratory event. Most of the questions will involve determining who is the source of the quote, but there may be some variations.|
And with that, as a little precursor I offer you this observation on New Year's Eve and other holidays from Cindy Chupack, writing in the October 2002 issue of Glamour magazine:
"The problem is Halloween's position in the holiday lineup. It's the last strictly fun holiday before the heavy hitters (Thanksgiving, Christmas/Hanukah, New Year), and any single knows you can't break up during The Season. But you can break up on Halloween. The Halloweenie sees The Season as an express train to next year, and if he's at all undecided about his relationship, that's a train he'd rather not board. In addition, the Halloweenie knows that not breaking up in late October means suffering through Thanksgiving which usually involves two nonrefundable tickets to somewhere like Pittsburgh, where his girlfriend's mother will inevitably express her desire for grandchildren over the wishbone. He might wish he'd simply gone cold turkey, but it's too late. He can't break up on Thanksgiving. Then Christmas-slash-Hanukah rolls around, and that involves gift-giving, something most men don't do very well. Add to that the hassle of holiday shopping and the possibility of selecting something inadequate (or worse: something so good it's paraded around as a symbol of his love) and many men will wish they'd wrapped up the relationship rather than a gift. But only a Grinch breaks up at Christmas. Then it's New Year's Eve, the world's most high-pressure date night, which involves serious planning and a midnight kiss that "means something" and lacks your relationship in the next calendar year. This is why most Halloweenies would prefer to trick you into breaking up with them rather than treat you to another holiday season."
