Today has officially been dubbed as Blue Monday (source)
Sorry to disappoint you Experts, but I’m not blue, whatever day of the week, unless of course we have sub zero temperatures and we all look like the cast of the next Smurf movie.
A lot of people don’t like Mondays (cue Bob Geldolf and the Boomtown Rats smash hit of 1979). It’s seen as the first working day after the weekend, or the first day back after a holiday, or the start of a new school week.
I have my own theory as to why today is classed as Blue Monday.
Just one reason really.
A lot of the envelopes hitting the household mat today will contain those dreaded Credit Card Bills showing the card holder exactly how much they spent over Christmas.
Or should I say Over Spent on Christmas.
