Times Square holds its first New Year's Eve celebration, the board game Monopoly is patented, "Calvin and Hobbes" say goodbye, and the U.S. relinquishes control of the Panama Canal, all on this day.
1967: The Green Bay Packers win the National Football League championship game by defeating the Dallas Cowboys 21-17 at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The game is known as the "Ice Bowl" since it was played in a wind chill of 40 degrees below zero. By winning the game, the Packers earned the right to move on to face American Football League champion Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl II.
