"Blue Monday" is a bogus "equation", created to market Sky Travel holidays.
The evidence shows low mood doesn't vary with season.
Using pseudoscience to "just start a conversation" is not helpful. Mental health discussions should be built on honesty.

"In your home, you are not a thing, you are a person, and the things around you exist for your comfort and benefit, not the other way around. Shouldn’t it be that way in our cities?" writes @firstname.lastname@example.org https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2020/jan/17/the-case-for-cities-where-youre-the-sensor-not-the-thing-being-sensed
