For everyone jumping on the band wagon today saying that today is supposedly the most depressing day of the year due to the miserable weather and Christmas being in the rear view mirror, you’re wrong.
I bet you didn’t know that Blue Monday was actually a 2005 PR stunt from Sky Travel. It seems that holiday bookings were on a low this time 12 years ago so Sky set out to find a new way to sell their holidays to us Brits who are fed up of the cold and wet weather.
There is actually no reason why so-called Blue Monday should stand out compared to any other day this month because there is no scientific evidence that proves today is any different at all.
So cheer up!
