Yeah.  Although New Year's Eve and New Year's Day are not mentioned specifically by name.  However, if you start with Christmas on December 25, you can figure out where in the calendar you are.  Some days like December 28 & 29 are just mentioned in passing, with only a paragraph or two dedicated to them, but then other days, like December 30, have about 5 chapters dedicated to the character's activities on those days.  So for, example, Chapter 14 is Christmas day, while Chapters 15 and 16 take place on Boxing Day, December 26.  And then Chapters 17 to 20 are mostly December 30, with December 27-29 mentioned.

Actually, Cabin Island doesn’t have any New Year’s Day scenes, as the book ends in the afternoon of New Year’s Eve.  Of course, as McFarlane had originally planned it, the book would’ve finished on the afternoon of December 30.

The original text is certainly one of my all time favorite HB books.  I would read it again now, but the weather is way too cold to be reading about snow.  The radio that "we are the coldest capital city in the world".  (of course that might just be independent nation-states, and not places like Greenland).
