Statistically speaking, you feel like garbage today.
Why do we feel the need to make a record and point of the saddest day of the year? Because some travel company thought making pseudo-scientific statements would make for good marketing, apparently. Well, their claim has stuck, so I guess they did something right?
What’s even weirder is that you hear random people talking about Blue Monday and saying how yes, you are indeed unusually likely to die in a traffic accident today, and oh, let’s stave off depression by calling in sick and staying home today. No wonder today’s garbage.
This really isn’t something we should focus on. And yet, here we are.
