Happy Weekends

"We find that there is...significantly more happiness, enjoyment, and laughter, and significantly less worry, sadness, and anger on weekends (including public holidays) than on weekdays."
Why? Because people spend more time socializing with friends and family on weekends (7.1 hours) than on weekdays (5.4 hours).
