Feeling particularly sad today? Life getting you down more than normal? Are your cornflakes particularly soggy today? Your commute extra annoying?
Well, don’t worry – there’s a reason for it. That’s because today is officially the saddest day of the year. Yeah, if you thought this week could not get any gloomier with Friday’s inauguration of Donald Trump as President of the United States, guess again. Back in 2005, Dr Cliff Arnall came up with a formula for predicting the saddest day of the year based on such things as the weather, debts, time since Christmas and motivation. And today’s the day.
