hey everyone so i thought this was interseting "Today is Monday. Today is also the third week of January. Put two and two together and its no surprise today is traditionally seen as the most depressing day of the year. Ive had tears in my eyes all day, I just figured the New Years hangover finally caught up with me.

But no. According to the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) today is the day the nation, as one, decides it cant handle it anymore and books a holiday. After all theres nothing quite like counting down to going away to combat the misery months, and weve spent a good couple of years resigning ourselves to holidaying in Berkshire as we bask in the warm glow of austerity. Quite simply I think we deserve it.

A staggering two million people are expected to book a holiday this week, and the discount deals are mounting.

With the pound recently rallying to a reasonably acceptable 1.20, Spain, Italy, Portugal and Greece are top of the list of desirable destinations. Interestingly, Spain looks to be the second cheapest holiday destination, according to a Post Office study which considered day-to-day expenditure. Sri Lanka took pole position, and is certainly the place to find fairly ubiquitous sunshine, as well as being a fascinating country.

Head of Communications at ABTA, Victoria Bacon says: With two four-day weekends in the first half of 2012 [Easter and the Diamond Jubilee] many people are expected to take advantage of the time off work and go abroad.

So, if youre feeling a little down today, dont sweat it. Book a holiday destination and sweat it there instead. Maybe youll get a chance to wear your new musk."
