January 4 Blue Monday is a name given to a date stated, as part of a publicity campaign by Sky Travel in 2005, to be the most depressing day of the year. The date is generally reported as falling on the third Monday in January but also on the second or fourth Monday, or the Monday of the last full week of January. The first such date declared was 24 January in 2005. Any Monday after a holiday week/weekend can be considered depressing, no worries, this is normal. The holidays are over! Welcome back! I hope you survived the holiday in one piece.
