I mean holidays was before January 5
For example in Russia we celebrated 1,2,3,4. And back to work 5. So too much
people flushed their holiday`s blocks that day.

I think that day was the best day from the beginning of RC5-72:
~3,292,000 Blocks were completed 05-Jan-2004
"The odds are 1 in 333,990 that we will wrap this thing up in the next 24
hours. (This also means that we'll hit 100% in 333,990 days at yesterday's

333,990 => 915 years :)
