Not exactly. The President is not allowed to declare way; the Constitution reserves this power to the Congress. But on December 8, 1941, President Roosevelt addressed a special session of Congress and requested that Congress declare that a state of war existed between the United States and the Japanese Empire.
On December 8, 1941: He made a speech (...a date which will live in infamy...) before a Joint Session of Congress, and asked that Congress declare war on Japan.
It was a speech by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to a joint session of congress the day after Pearl Harbor was attacked by the Japanese. The attack took place on December 6, 1941 and Roosevelt said it was a "day of infamy". He also declared war on Imperial Japan in that speech.
The Hundred Day Congress
The Fourth Session of the Indian National Congress was held in 1888 at Allahabad,Uttar Pradesh, perhaps in December.
A Congressional session runs for one year, 3 January to sometime in December. Adjournment means that Congress is out of session, it is closed to business.
Each year, the Congress has two sessions unless the president calls a special session of Congress. Every two years, a new meeting of Congress assumes office. Currently (December 2, 2010) the second session in 2010 of the meeting of the 111th Congress is conducting business. In January 2011, the first session of the <newly-elected> meeting of the 112th Congress will begin.
President Franklin Delano Roosevelt referred to the Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941 as "a date which will live in infamy." He made the comment on the day after the attack, in an address before a joint session of Congress. Roosevelt asked the Congress to approve a declaration of war against Japan.

100 Day Congress
Yes it did. The Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. On December 8 US President Franklin D. Roosevelt addressed a joint session of the US Congress and asked for a Declaration of War against Japan, and Japan only. Congress then voted for war against Japan. On December 11 Germany, Japan's ally, declared war on the US, followed shortly thereafter by Italy.
