When Jack wakes up the day after Christmas and sees Kate in the shower, she says "Tuesday's your day", implying it is Jack's turn to take the kids to winter camp and daycare. This means Christmas was on Monday and Christmas Eve was on Sunday. Jack was at the office on Christmas Eve and he told his employees in the war room there was still a full day of trading but the markets never trade on Sunday.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Jack and Kate used to live in the Village, yet Jack asks Annie if he had "ever taken her mother to the City". Since they moved out around the time of Annie's birth, this clearly refers to the time after that move.
