- "And Ma's gonna let us have a New Years party!"
- ―Francis McReary
The McReary family celebrate the end of 2013, and throw a big party. Through Salvador Real, they also meet some new people. Meanwhile, Kate is upset over her breakup with Mark Sanders, which apparently happened during "San Salvador's Story". As Salvador cheers her up, she starts to fall in love with him.

- Although the comic takes place on December 31, 2013, it was released on February 5, 2014. However, the comic is still considered the last comic of 2013.
- This is the second comic that Jose Gonzales appears without his brother Joel, although Joel was mentioned. ("Diamonds in the Rough")
- The comic takes place on the same day as its previous comic, The Ballad of Anti-Cutecumber, as proven in the Cletus Comics comic "When The N.O.O.S.E Attack!" (although TBOAC is now non-canon to SR).
- Salvador Real and Pablo Torres mention some events from Sibling Rivalries: Salvador Real's Adventures this comic, being the first characters to do so. This comic was released before SRA was, so the idea for the prequel came pretty early.
- Third comic to remain at night for the entire comic. ("The Curse of the Milderbeast", "The McRearys' Halloween Special!")
- A banner at the party reads "Goodbye, 2013, Hello, 2014!", a reference to the Cletus Comics comic "Goodbye, 2012, Hello, 2013", as Cletus and his friends have a party to celebrate the end of 2012 and beginning of 2013.
- Also, under that very banner, Cletus makes an easter egg appearance on the table next to the fruit punch.
