The Constitution (Article 2, Section 3) requires him to "from time to time give to the Congress information on the state of the Union". This does not have to be an annual event, but has become so by custom and it does not have to be a speech,
but that is what people expect now and it gets great press coverage so it has become a political necessity.

The Constitution dictates that the President "...shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the State of the Union..." (Article II, Section 3) This requirement has evolved into the tradition of the annual State of the Union speech. In reality, what we do today is completely unnecessary, as the normal considerably interaction and consultation that goes on between Congress and the Office of the President would more than suffice to fulfill the Constitutional requirement. It's just a nice tradition (and, a great way to make a policy speech to a captive audience).
January 6, 1941 was the date of Roosevelt's 1941 state of the union address which came to be known as the Four Freedoms Speech.
Garfield died in September of his first year in office. He did not have time to give his first state of the union speech.
Article 2 Section 3 Clause 1 of the US Constitution states "He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient;". The State of the Union speech satisfies this duty by tradition; however, the President does not have to give an actual speech. He may simply deliver a written document to the Congress describing his views on the State of the Union. This was last done by Jimmy Carter for his final State of the Union in 1981 shortly before he left office.Carter's final State of the Union has become known as the, "I ain't talking to them a$$holes" speech.
