Blue Monday (today) is supposed to be the saddest day of the year.
- It’s about 11 months before Christmas
- It’s about the time when the bills from the last Christmas are coming due
- The weather is bad
- The days are short and dark
- There are no holidays (save Robbie Burns’ day) in the near future
- Everyone is just now failing to keep their New Year’s resolutions
- It’s a Monday
However, next week is Robbie Burns’ day. Don’t forget to wear your kilt and eat a haggis or something!
