The weather can be dreary and in winter it is dark most of the day, but Denmark is still the happiest place in the world to live, according to a new report.
A look at the top 6 of the happiest countries in the World show that they are all free of natural disasters, little corruption and have a near absence of dramatic events but they also are regular recipients of lots and lots of snow.
Denmark tops the 2016 World Happiness Report with Switzerland second and then Iceland, Norway, Finland and Canada while the US comes in at 13, UK 23, France 32 and Italy 50.
At the opposite end of the list and the official least happiest place to lives are Burundi, Syria, Togo,
Afghanistan, Benin and Rwanda which you may note are snow free which confirms my theory that snow (or lack of it) is responsible for the happiness of a population.
My conclusion is that in order to achieve happiness, Governments should invest heavily on snow machines.
