Episodes of stupid TV sitcoms have had plots centered on who kisses who at midnight. If a person is single, or on shaky ground in a relationship, the importance of this gets inflated to the extreme, and it is ridiculous. At a New year's Eve party, people will try and position themselves to be kissed by the person they want to kiss them, and hide from people they don't want kissing them. The whole concept is asinine.
