There is some very strange research out there at the moment that says the happiest year ever was 1880 and the most miserable 1978. It's based apparently on looking at printed matter and finding certain words and how often they occur. Now I can believe that there were people who could read and write who were happy and wanted to read lightweight things , but as for everybody? I really doubt it.
As for 1978 I had a young baby. I was just shattered all the time!
