The New Year's Potato Drop in Boise, Idaho. It's an event that has been the subject of much debate on the r/Idaho subreddit. Is it worth it? Well, let's dive into the great potato debate, shall we?

First, if you're planning to drive 13 hours just to see a giant potato descend from the sky as the clock strikes midnight, I'd seriously question your life choices. I mean, sure, it's a spectacle, but so is watching paint dry if you stare at it long enough. But hey, who am I to judge? Maybe you're a spud enthusiast, or perhaps you've always dreamed of celebrating New Year amidst the crisp Idaho air with a massive tuber hanging overhead. To each their own, right?

Now, don't get me wrong. The fireworks display over the capitol is indeed a sight to behold. There's something genuinely magical about the way those brilliant lights burst against the dark winter sky. It's almost enough to distract you from the fact that you're standing in the freezing cold, waiting for a potato to drop.

The sarcastic tone of the comments on the subreddit does suggest that the potato drop might not be everyone's cup of tea. But hey, if you're into quirky traditions and don't mind braving the cold, the New Year's Potato Drop in Boise is probably worth it.
