Depressing Days

Despite what a new TV show may tell you, it's not all about numbers.

A friend sent me an e-mail a couple of days ago in which someone had calculated that the most Depressing Day of the year was January 24. This was calculated by including the number of days past the holidays, the level of bad weather, and some gobbledy-gook about the number of days in which one hadn't kept their New Year's resolution.

Being someone who does not make resolutions at the new year, and living in a place that had a perfectly clear and lovely day on the 24th, it seems more than a little silly. Besides which why choose the most depressing day of the year so soon. There are 340 more days which may be filled with foul weather, tragedy, or other depression inciting events.

In spite of all that, have a happy Wednesday!
