I've also just tried a few of the other US states, and New York 
(--cc-holidays=US_NY) does report the correct 25th and 1st for Christmas and 
New Years, while apparently all other US states report 26th and 2nd.

$ ls -al /etc/localtime
/etc/localtime -> /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/New_York

I changed /etc/localtime to a few other /usr/share/zoneinfo/ files, such as:

... and no change in reporting the 26th/2nd.

Again, this seemingly only popped-up once installing Ubuntu and upon 
experiencing Ubuntu BIOS/RTC clock timezone problems.  shrugs...

Dates on gcal source files indicate no changes since 2017, unless a New Yorker 
hacked the code.

WORKAROUND: If in US, set to US_NY for reporting correct US holidays.
