7 week old sleeping all day?

I have a seven week old, normally he needs to be held to fall asleep and really only stays asleep when being held. Today, though he's slept practically all day. Wherever I lay him he falls asleep and will stay asleep until I wake him. He'll wake up to eat, but is still half asleep. I can force him to wake up by moving him and changing his diaper, but he just falls right back asleep when I stop. This is my second child, but I don't remember the first ever sleeping this way. Is this normal for his sleep pattern to change so drasticaly in just one day?

Frankly, I'd call this in to your pediatric advice line or simply take the baby in.  I realize it's Christmas, but this kind of sleepiness sounds like a lot more than the norm for most babies (i.e., not just a growth spurt or other common possibilities).  If things haven't changed since you posted and you can't get other help (like a pediatric advice line), I'd consider going to the ER.
