Here's what's open and closed on New Year's Day (observed) in Mass.

You know what there's not a lot of? Great movies centered around New Year's Day. The closest we've gotten is "When Harry Met Sally," but that's really about the final scene, and even then, the vast majority of that scene happens on New Year's Eve.

So if you're creative, there's your assignment: Write a great New Year's movie. And you'll have some time to work on it on Jan. 1 and on Monday, Jan. 2, as lots of places are closed, limiting your distractions. And if you're lazy, maybe ask Bono to write a movie based on U2's great song, "New Year's Day."

Here's what's open and what's closed on New Year's Day (observed):

Federal offices: Closed.

Post offices: Closed.
