So many different factors. Location matters. In Pasadena,CA on New Year's Eve day or January 1st in 2019 would likely be a bad idea.

Neither.Most, if any traffic you get either day will probably not be serious buyers. And if it's an occupied residence, sellers will probably not want an OH.

Define "good idea" :-)

Seriously though, a New Year's Eve Open House could be good if it was on a weekend. I know that many people still work on NYE. 

And New Year's Day... assuming it wasn't first thing in the morning, could be marketed as a great way to start the year.

That being said, I would not do it myself because I enjoy my downtime on NYE and NY Day.

I would not be holding one open but hey if you don't have anything to do, your seller wants one and you want to give it a try..go for it! It only takes one buyer to make an offer and BINGO your listing is under contract!
