Actually Nancy...

“The date of the State of the Union is not a sacred date. It’s not constitutionally required."
-- Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (CA-12)
 The State of the Union is required by The Constitution.

Article II, Section 3, requiring the President to periodically "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."

She's right that there's no date specified, but it does need to be done.

It would appear that it gets done at The President's discretion.
