3. Congressional sessions are specifically determined to start and stop at certain times.

If members of Congress hung around and didn't go home at the end of a session, they couldn't conduct any official business because they're in recess until January 3. They have no capacity to act when they're not in session so they'd just look dumb, like they're pointlessly grandstanding - which is exactly what they'd be doing.
