The Dutch were the happiest last year after the national football team beat Uruguay to qualify for the World Cup final, according to Erasmus University’s happiness index.
At that point, the index stood at 7.9 but after the Netherlands lost the final, the index fell back to 6.7.
Some 10,000 people have registered their feelings with the index over the course of the year, the Telegraaf says.
