Depends on your content.
Sometimes we look for old, "expired" news and find out everything is gone. Perhaps there are few visits for that vanish (or soon to vanish) content but very often the urgency for that content is dramatically high. Once again it depends on your content.
Consider recycling your content. If its old news you could create new pages based on "5 years ago" or some analysis on patterns. Or just "The top 5 widgets advancements of the last 10 years". I did something like that on a crucial date for one of my webs.
This way you will be creating one new page of content based on your old content making it useful. To avoid "just mixing old stuff" add something of value like "who would have guessed...." or "remember the noise we made out of the super widget last year? its dead".
And why not a end of year memory? even radios do that putting old songs from past years. A local radio on their 30th anniversary made each day of december match each of their 30 last years.
