Today I learned the origin of the term 'Blue Monday'. Simplified, it's the third Monday in January.

Coincidentally, I posted an Instagram story containing an eponymous song by New Order on this year's third Monday in January, without knowing it was Blue Monday.

less simplified:
- weather is cold and wet, sun goes down way to early
- it's been 3 weeks since new year, and all newyear resolutions have failed by now
- and it's still sooooo long before summer arrives

blue monday is said to be the most depressing day of the year...
