Happy Blue Monday!!

From the Myth Master's Team's Desk.....

Happy Blue Monday Everybody! O: You haven't heard of the Infamous Blue Monday! Thats is SO shocking!! Well here's a short summary of this wonderful holiday:

"Psychologists have dubbed it "Blue Monday", a date in January when post-Christmas gloom is at its worst.
It is worked out with a formula taking into account six factors: weather, debt, time since Christmas, time since failing our New Year's resolutions, low motivational levels and the feeling of a need to take action.
David Sillito has been to discover if there are any reasons to be cheerful. "

So happy Blue Monday! Try not to die today!

Also something I found about Blue Monday on Wikipedia:

"where weather=W, debt=d, time since Christmas=T, time since failing our new year’s resolutions=Q, low motivational levels=M and the feeling of a need to take action=Na. 'D' is not defined in the release, nor are units.

This date allegedly falls on the third Monday of January. The date was declared by Arnall to be 24 January in 2005, 23 January in 2006, 22 January in 2007, 21 January in 2008, 19 January in 2009 and 18 January in 2010.

Mr Arnall also says, in a press release commissioned by Wall's ice cream, that he has calculated the happiest day of the year - in 2005, 24 June, in 2006, 23 June, in 2008, 20 June and in 2009 19 June. So far, this date has fallen close to Midsummer."
