Regarding the happiness of the Swedish people, there's an old saying you can't miss what you don't have you can't miss what you never had or experience. And that's what makes them happy.

In my opinion; Scandinavian countries (Also Finland) are the epitome of European society, and the peak of human civilization! Their way if life should be followed in the rest of the world.

Very blessed are the people who are born here.
