Infinite Thrills : 6 reasons to be cheerful this Blue Monday

January can be a mission. You’re back at work, Christmas is a distant memory and there doesn’t seem to be an end to the cold mornings and overcast days.

Did you know that the date that Blue Monday falls on is calculated using the weather and the state of the nation’s finances after the Christmas period? Also, it only applies to the Northern Hemisphere… lucky us!

Misery aside, there’s actually plenty to occupy or distract you at this time of year if you know where to look and what to look forward to. Check out our six reasons to be cheerful this Blue Monday with a distinctly theme park twist!
