Norway has been named the world’s happiest country, according to the World Happiness Report 2017.

(Norway moved up 4 places, and knocked Denmark off the top spot into second place, by ranking highly on the main factors found to contribute to happiness: “caring, freedom, generosity, honesty, health, income and good governance”.

Iceland and Switzerland rounded out the top four. Sadly The UK sits in 19th place, beaten by Germany in 16th and the US in 14th. Poor old France is a miserable 31st in the standings.

So much for Hygge. Although I guess to really experience Hygge, this sort of thing shouldn’t matter.)
