9 of the best #BlueMonday social posts

Tuesday, January 16th, 2018

Blue Monday is *apparently* the most depressing day of the year. Every third Monday in January we all rally round and ask ourselves if we are actually feeling “blue” or if the internet is just telling us we are. Either way, we love the hype on social of a trending hashtag. Here are 9 of our favourite social posts from the gloomiest 24 hours of the social media calendar!

1. CBeebies
#TiredTuesday is our new fave thing, we can’t deny it! Plus, it’s not limited to a once a year use – hello weekly content.


2. Women’s Health
Our kinda mantra…


3. Pukka Pies
Ok, so we’re biased on this one but sometimes a tasty dinner just makes a dull day 10 times better!


4. BBC 6 Music
We thinks the world’s caught on this year to the fact that we’re the only ones making any Monday blue.

In all seriousness this is a great article, give it a read if you’ve got 10 minutes!

5. Manchester United
Begrudgingly giving them this one. You’re red. We get it.


6. Lindsay Ell
Yeah, we hadn’t heard of her either and apparently, she’d only heard of Blue Monday this year. This year!


7. NME
A #BlueMonday tweet with actual factual knowledge. We’re down.


8. Innocent Drinks
Always up there with the trending topics are our Innocent.


9. National Trust
A.K.A the most satisfying video you’ll see today.

By making use of Instagram’s tagging capabilities, Old Spice engineered a variety of stories that kept players gripped, and subtly promoted their product throughout. Genius, eh?
