The tag's description is:

A new year's puzzle is any puzzle that is posted around the first day of any year that has to do with that specific year or calendars in some way.

This isn't really an objective tag. Its questions include:

This seems to be more of a meta-tag. When you have a question tagged with you know the question involves the use and manipulation of strings. But when you have a question tagged with there's many things it could be about, as you can see above, and knowing that a question is related to the new year gives little to no useful information.

So, what should we do with this?

Looks like the first category of challenges do fit the tag description, but keeping a tag that applies to a very small number of posts and gets used incorrectly more often doesn't sound like a good idea.
