About the Holiday

National Thank God It's Monday Day, tgim, goes into the questionmark bin. We're not sure why we celebrate the first Monday of the year. Perhaps it's to be different, since on every other week we typically thank God it's Friday (tgif). If you find it difficult to get into the spirit of being thankful for the first Monday, perhaps you could tweak the celebration into National Thank God Monday's Over (tgmo) with your choice of spirited beverage at workday's end.

Another interpretation/speculation could be with the holiday break and New Year's Day potentially on a Monday, that many companies and schools have the first Monday of the year off as a holiday. Thus, this holiday could be celebrating Monday in a tongue-and-cheek way being a potential off day for many.

Perhaps after a long break with the kids being home, it's nice for stay-at-home or work-at-home parents to have a "normal" house again.

In the event that you're one of those people who just loves to work, then this holiday is truly for you. If you'd like to be one of those people (or you're a manager who'd like their staff to have this mindset), then maybe the website can help.

We're not sure who started this holiday and why, though, we'd like to find out. In the meantime, there's enough potential interpretations of this holiday for everyone to have reason to celebrate!
