At any rate, this campaign has caught our attention and now we're trying to figure out exactly which Monday in January is actually that most depressing one. Some say the third Monday or tomorrow. Some say the first Monday. Some are too depressed to say anything. If only we all had a Blue Monday candy bar and a sunny window and a great book to read, then blue Monday would be a thing of the past. That sunny window is actually what the psychologists say we should seek out to chase away the winter blues and everybody knows a little chocolate can be a spirit lifter.
By the way, the same man credited with figuring out a January Monday is the most depressing day of the year, also decided on the happiest day of the year. That, he claims, falls generally in June between the 21st and the 24th. Those can be some pretty nice days of summer with plentiful sunshine and they sell those chocolate bars all year long.
So how do you feel about it? Do Mondays make you blue? Is tomorrow the most depressing day of the year? I would think not since many people are having a school and work holiday for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Maybe they (whoever they are) should pick a different Monday.

I'm for that! Let's choose happiness this week. Thanks for reading. By the way, starting in February I'm changing my blog schedule a bit. I'll just post here once a week and move Jocie's Hollyhill blog post to Wednesdays. After all, I've got a book to write.
