So who is the happiest country in the world? At the top are the Scandinavian countries, with Finland starring in first place. This is the top ten in the happiness index: 1. Finland, 2. Denmark, 3. Norway, 4. Iceland, 5. The Netherlands, 6. Switzerland, 7. Sweden, 8. New Zealand, 9. Canada, 10. Austria. 
The saddest countries in the world are the sub-Saharan countries of Africa, Syria, South Sudan and Yemen.
The ranking is based on six criteria: national product, health expenditure, freedom of residents, generosity, social support and lack of corruption in government and business.
International Happiness Day is a useful reminder to all of us that general happiness does not necessarily stem from buying and consuming, or from being famous or glamorous - but often from friends, family and emotional well-being.
The commercials tell us that if we buy as much as possible we will be happy, the celebrities present us with a glamorous picture of beauty and happy smiles, but is it real? What really makes us happy?
In honor of Happy Day, we wish you a happy day!
