I think you are referring to "Ebenezer Scrooge" from "A Christmas Carol"

Scrooge was a miser (stingy person - does not like giving, sharing spending etc) So

"I became the New Year's version of Scrooge (because Scrooge is normally associated with Christmas) linking arms and singing a verse of Auld Lang Syne (a song normally sung on New Years Eve) My cup of kindness was half empty (half empty because that is something that Scrooge would do) 

The words in the original song says "We'll take a cup of kindness yet"

I know it's very confusing but I hope this helps a bit

And this is the song "Auld Lang Syne":
