Monday? Specifically a Monday morning? There's a reason that comedians, songwriters, and just about everyone else regularly scoffs at its mere mention.
But there are also uplifting, smile-making, things-are-going-my-way moments to enjoy on a Monday morning, especially when one of the world's best-known breakfast sandwiches is part of an appetizing giveaway.
That superstar sammie? It's the Egg McMuffin, of course, which will turn 50 years old next year.

It's been egging-up and cheesing-out people's breakfasts for decades now, and, on the morning of March 2, it will be free from 6 a.m. through to mid-morning, at 10:30.
