Letter: Is Blue Monday an excuse for a holiday?

Apparently it was Blue Monday on January 16, the worst Monday of the year, and the day more people will quit their New Year’s resolutions.

I suggest that making these resolutions each year is a waste of time. Who sticks to them?

Life is hard for us all and giving up chocolate or booze is a rash decision in my opinion.

My friend just messaged me to say she’s so fed up she has booked a very expensive holiday for later in the year to cheer herself up.

A light-hearted letter wonders if Blue Monday was made up by travel agents.

Of course she said she will be miserable in a few months when the large balance wants paying off.

Maybe Blue Monday is thought up by travel agents to get us thinking of sunnier climes, selling more hols!
