Blue Monday is supposed to be the most depressing day of the year. It is usually calculated to fall on the third Monday in January—after Christmas has passed, the tree has been taken down and decorations put away, and the bills have started to roll in. The days bring cold, cold temperatures and little sunlight for many of us, making this a bleak time of year. Whether you believe in “Blue Monday” to be real, a self-fulfilling prophecy, a real condition linked to Seasonal Affective Disorder, or simply chalk it up to the post-holiday slump, you could still probably use some cheering up in the way of adorable animals. So here are some photos of super cute animals sure to cheer you up and help get you through the blue Monday slump. Enjoy!
