Something like this:

If ( (Get-Date).DayOfYear -gt 1 )
# Your code

Thank you Tim! Did you mean for January 1st should be

-eq 1

If #Your code is going to be to exit, then yes, you would use -eq 1. I tend to do it in reverse, so as to avoid exiting in the middle of a script, and to talk about the desired condition in a positive way, rather than filtering out the complementary condition. "If today is after January 1, do something."
