Feeling a little sad and depressed today because it’s Blue Monday?
Well, stop feeling sad, because it is NOT the most depressing day of the year!
For the last few years, media outlets have reported on the third Monday of January being “Blue Monday” and the saddest day of the year based on science.
The “science” in this case comes from Dr. Cliff Arnall, a former part-time tutor at Cardiff University who left the institution in the mid-2000’s, who claimed to have connected weather to various factors to come to a sound conclusion on the matter.
His study, which scientists have torn to shreds, was used by now dead holiday company Sky Travel, to promote their business.
Arnall also published “research” on the happiest day of the year not too long ago, but this study came out while he was working for an ice cream company!
