“Blue Monday” is usually associated with the third Monday of January, often considered the most depressing day of the year. The origin of this concept dates back to 2005 when a travel agency issued a press release claiming to have calculated the date using a formula that considered various factors such as weather conditions, debts, time since Christmas, and the failure of New Year’s resolutions.


However, it is important to emphasize that the scientific validity of this formula and the designation of a specific day as the “most depressing” have been widely criticized. Depression is a complex mental disorder and cannot be accurately predicted based on a specific date. If you or someone you know is going through a period of depression, it is essential to seek support from mental health professionals.

Today, social media leverage the concept of Blue Monday to spread memes, funny photos, and ironic statuses. Sadness is a feeling that does not follow fixed rules, but according to Arnall’s formula, Blue Monday is identified as the third Monday of January in the northern hemisphere. To celebrate it, many users share themed posts on platforms like Instagram or Facebook, participating in a fun tradition fueled by collective enthusiasm.


And you, how do you plan to spend this infamous Blue Monday?
