Florida, 2nd best place to live in the U.S.

A couple of days ago, the Guardian reported about a recent study that concluded the happiest - and least happiest - places to live in the United States. In a list of 51 states (the odd number comes from counting the 50 American states plus Washington D.C.), Florida came out as the second happiest place to live in America, behind Louisiana.

Might that have something to do with gorgeous weather and beautiful beaches. Yes, very likely! Imagine spending your winter months with regular trips to the beach, temperatures in the mid twenties celsius, no rain in sight, and a more relaxed pace of life.

Here's a photo of Dania Beach just this December - looks pretty chilled, huh?

Spare a thought for New York, which came out as the least happy place to live. Hey, I never though it was that bad - perhaps New Yorkers just complain more?

With that, I wish all my readers a very Happy Christmas whether you may be!
