Today is the Happiest Day of the Year

Put on a happy face

Today, May 18, is the happiest day of the year according to happiness expert Dr Cliff Arnall from Cardiff University.

It’s spring, the days are sunnier and longer and there is a holiday soon.

Last year, this same expert deemed June 24th as the happiest day by working out the following equation:

O + (N x S) + Cpm/T + He.

O = outdoors and outdoor activity
N = nature
S = social interaction
Cpm = childhood summers and positive memories
T = temperature
He = holidays and looking forward to time off.


  1. what about 06-06-06. Is that going to be a happy day?
    I am waiting for someone to say something about that date.
    You know, like SAY something...

  2. It would have been a happy day if I didn't just get a visit from Aunt Flow.

    Yes, I know ~ Too Much Information

  3. all that quantifying just stripped the fun out of it.
