Well, that's the day when our Christmas fling is over and the bills start getting tallied up in time for the January sticker shock on how much
Christmas cost this year!!
But on a more serious note, the chances, of anything happening on any particular date is 1 in 365.25. The Earth is not aware of calendars -- it sure
isn't aware of the American holiday calendar, either (remember that our calendar is just a count of years since an assigned date. It's different
dates and months for other cultures. For example, the Jewish year is 5767 and there's all sorts of winter holidays during the December-January time
period. There isn't a traditional "day of horrible things".
