Shojo New Year Scene

What is the most memorable new year's scene in a shojo manga? A few come to my mind, but I wondered what every one else out there could think of. Post it in the comments and let's see if we can come up with a pretty good list. Domo arigato!

I'd have to go with Ouran Host Club. I can't remember if it was just the New Year's scene that was memorable, but there was a lot of extra emotion also because of Hikaru's confession.

Fruits Basket: Tohru, Kyo, and Yuki on the roof - I really like that because Yuki and Kyo ditched the party at the main house to celebrate the new year with Tohru.
Paradise Kiss: Yukari and George watching sun rise after going to the temple - it's a bitter sweet scene, iirc.

The one in Paradise Kiss! It was so perfectly them, I loved it.

I'm about to cheat because my favorite New Year's scene is actually from a Light Novel and will make sense to *no one*, but.... in the "Maria-sama ga Miteru" series, there is one short where Kazumi, Shouko's older sister runs into Eriko at the local shrine on New Year's Day and she realizes that her three-year long rivalry with the other woman was never returned, and that it cloaked a deep, profound admiration and a bit of a crush.

It's a beautiful scene, captured masterfully by a great writer.
