    Because new years was on a Sunday the "bank holiday"/gov't office observance, at least in the US is today.
    Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorius triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
