Does the end of the day mean midnight?  In that case, you could cause
the processing from Emacs, using midnight.el.

Or does it mean when you hit C-x C-c?  In that case,
kill-emacs-query-functions or kill-emacs-hook might be for you.

Isn't it nasty of Emacs that it also wants to take over the job of
cron?
