Today’s idiom: “Blue Monday”

27 Oct

In English, the colour blue is used for expressing sadness. The music genre “Blues” got its name from the sad tone of much of the music.

So, “Blue Monday” describes the sad feeling of having to go back to work after a pleasant weekend. If you have this feeling, you “have the Monday blues”. I hope you don’t have it today!
