Check out today’s Teatime Titbit: 11 ish interesting facts about Mondays.
Mondays have got a bad reputation, haven’t they? The website Oddee.com mostly confirmed this with depressing stats like:
- Most people do not smile on Monday until 11.16 am – obviously the first thoughts about what’s for lunch.
- Most people will moan about it being Monday for a whole 12 minutes.
- 50% of workers on Monday are late for work.
- Staff ensures maximum productivity during only 3.5 hours on Mondays.
- Most suicides and heart attacks occur on Monday.

Thankfully https://www.thefactsite.com/2018/01/monday-facts.html gives a more balanced list.
Did you know Monday is the best day to buy a car? It is also the day, when the U.S. stock market is most likely to rise and the least likely it is to rain – I wonder if that includes Münster?!
In Latin Monday means ‘day of the moon’, there were only 53 Mondays in 2012 & 2018 (we have to wait until 2024 for it to happen again) and it is the only day of the week, which you can make a single word anagram out of, ‘dynamo’, – how cool is that.
Hope those little titbits brightened your mood a little. You can always check the out this the crucifixion scene in ‘Life of Brian’ with the song of the century – “Always look on the bright side of life” (with lyrics) – take it away YouTube: https://youtu.be/cs4XKzFC_oU
Have a Mega Monday and wonderful week.
