My grandfather wrote poetry and skits, usually for a specific or special occasion. Could anyone tell me what this is about? Based on the date I'm assuming it was written to celebrate New Years - I think in Germany it's called Sylvester?

Thank you,
Edith Goldman

This is typical occasional poetry for a family circle. The occasion is apparently a New Year's Eve celebration. Typically, each member of the family is given a verse, even a bride and groom get a joking comment.
