I suppose it was to be expected, everything else gets studied. A study into happiness levels on December 25th shows most people are so worried about things running smoothly they don’t truly enjoy themselves until early afternoon. And the time that people are the most happy (so you can plan ahead)?
Over 50% of those studied stated that Christmas was their favourite holiday of the year, and one-third claimed it was the happiest day of the year.
Further more, three quarters claim the Christmas dinner is largely responsible for any stress endured on the morning of the 25th, one in five said Christmas would be better if only the children would just sleep in a bit longer, although 71% said that family time is what Christmas is really all about.
