The time has come for a lot of us to get out of bed and spend the day doing something other than scoffing chocolate and watching old movies.
This morning, people began trudging back to work for the first time in 2020 and if you're feeling miserable about it you can take solace in the fact that you're not alone.
As is usually the case in times of desperation, Irish people have taken to Twitter to share their desolation and taking a few minutes to revel in everyone's misery is sure to ease your suffering.
Just remember, we're all in this together, except for those who don't have to go back until Monday. But the less said about them the better.

Like myself, I'm sure you all had a long and blissful sleep free of all fear and anxiety #backtowork

Starting the 2nd of January, the real New Years Day, right by hydrating as I cry about going back to work

Was woken at 2.30am, haven’t gotten back to sleep, the decision to be passive aggressive or not when my alarm goes off at 6.45am has still not been made.... first day back to work is going to be extra fun I think

There's doubtless a lot of people who can relate to all that. Don't despair though because the next Christmas break is just under 12 months away. Anyone else reckon they'll book a holiday before the day is out?
