Yesterday was the bluest day... That is what the expert said

It's true, some where someone decided to do a poll and yup, 01/14 of any calendar year is the bluest there is, here is why they said...

1. The holiday glow is now long past
2. The days are still getting dark early
3. Most of us have given up on our New Years Resolutions

WHAT!!! They do not realize that on 01/14 we are only 3 days from the Countdowns first milestone!

Further more they do not know of MMC

Nor are they probably listening to Christmas Music still...

I think these polls and stuff give people ideas, gives 01/14 a bum rap, what has 01/14 ever done to get this rap...

Let me think on 01/14, why it was on 01/14/1914 that Henry Ford introduced the Assembly Line for the Model T and on 01/14/1987 Catfish Hunter & Billy Williams elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame...

I say 01/14 has received a bad rap!!!

At least IMO

The song was composed by James Lord Pierpont, and details surrounding his life and the writing of the song have been contended over the years. In fact, in some older publications, the song's writer is listed as 'anonymous.' It is commonly accepted today, however, that Pierpont was indeed the writer, though the song was originally published under the title "One Horse Open Sleigh."

A musician, Pierpont was not famous, at least during his own time. In fact, it's highly likely that he never made a dime off of "Jingle Bells." Pierpont, the son of an American minister, struggled at times to eke out a living for his family, especially when he suffered a business loss during the San Francisco gold rush. Broke, and with a wife and children to support, he headed from California to Savannah, Georgia to ask his brother John...
