The Saddest Day

Most of our holiday decorations are packed away, and the credit card bills are starting to roll in after the holiday season spending spree. Sounds depressing, huh?

If you woke up feeling a little down, you're not alone. The Monday of the last full week in January is generally considered the most depressing day of the year.

Much of the country is under a cloud of cold, damp, darkness.

Plus, remember those well-intentioned promises you made new year's day. They were probably along the lines of exercising more and eating healthier.

Many people have given up and are already back to their old ways. Psychologists say this theory is based on informal research, but they say
anything that gets people talking about their feelings of depression is a good thing.

The "happiest day" of the year is considered by many as one of the last Friday's in June.
