    Re: blue Monday

    Here's what Brande & C provide:

    Blue Monday, (a) a Monday following a Sunday of dissipation, or itself given to dissipation (as the Monday before Lent). (b) a Monday considered as depressing because it is a workday in contrast to the relaxation of the weekend.

    In my dialect, (b) is more common than (a).
