(Newser) – Ever heard of Blue Monday? Well, it's today—January 6. Reportedly the most depressing day of the year. Why? Well, of course, the holidays are over. Goodbye, Christmas cheer. But Blue Monday was first declared in 2005 by an academic who looked at weather conditions, debt levels, failed New Year's resolutions, and more. Oh, and, today is also known as Divorce Monday—reportedly the most popular day to file for divorce, according to a British website that helps people file.
