Happiest Country On Earth Award DENMARK
Why? Although Denmark may be one of the world’s highest taxed countries, its top shelf education and parental leave policies play a major role in satisfaction amongst women. In the whole of Europe, retired Danish women were ranked as the most content. It comes as no surprise why it is known as the happiest country on earth!
What to do? Snuggle up with hygge (pronounced hue-guh), the unique Danish concept of cosiness and little pleasures in life. If you’re visiting during Christmas, you’re in for a treat – ‘tis the season when hygge is high. Bask in the light of millions of candles on the streets of Copenhagen, it is the Danes’ favourite weapon to combat the long dark winter.
