When did New Year's Day become an official U.S. holiday?
This seems like it should be an easy one, but for the life of me I can't find an answer. I've Googled around to no avail. Surely at some point in U.S. history, people got up on January 1st, hung over or not, and still had to go to work and/or school, etc. At some point -- in the 20th century? -- this changed. When was that?
