January 15 has been revealed as the most miserable day of the year, based on thirty years of data on the average of the coldest and darkest day.
Although Blue Monday – which this year falls on January 21 – is supposed to statistically be the most depressive day of the year, heating company Glowing Embers argues otherwise.
The company has researched the last three decades worth of weather data to discover exactly what dates the most miserable day of the year falls on.
It claims that the day, which falls on January 15, will be the most miserable due to its low temperature and dearth of solar energy.
However, different parts of the UK will experience their most miserable days on different dates. The research found that, for East Midlanders, January 16 is the date to remain wrapped up warm inside.
