Because people need to celebrate, and every new year is a milestone, so why not? ☺️

Because people need more reasons to waste money. #unpopularopinion

Traditionally I suppose it has to do with the passing of the shortest day of the year and the beginning of the move toward spring, planting, the next year's harvest, etc. The whole concept of the "rebirth" of the Earth. I do suspect it derives mainly from celebrations in the Northern Temeperate Zone and spread with Western Culture. Doesn't make much sense along the Equator and in the Southern Temperate Zone the seasons would be reversed.

celebrate the end of the year with family and friend's.
We need reasons to celebrate; especially in colder climates where there are long periods of miserable weather. People celebrate Christmas, but most everyone knows Christ wasn't born any time close to December 25th. We are celebrating the winter, because we need to.
