Today is officially the happiest day of the year; According to University Boffins
Academics believe a combination of outdoor activity, nice weather and planned holidays make June 23rd the most cheerful day on our calender.
The formula has been created by psychologists at Cardiff University who say happy childhood memories and social interaction also mean it is all smiles today.
Psychologist Cliff Arnall from the University of Cardiff who created the formula said 'This might seem strange, but is in fact easy to explain'
'Around June 23rd, the weather is warm and fair. People are more likely to have BBQ's, picnics and generally take part in more outdoor activity. Flowers are everywhere, windows are open at night, the air is fresher and people are out in the garden socialising, enjoying everything nature has to offer.
Also picnics and running to the ice-cream van bring back childhood memories for adults, and those nostalgic positive memories bring back happy feelings'
