I read somewhere that hormones responsible for good mood is produced better when there are a lot of sunny days. So, I agree that people living in hot countries are more happy than people living in Ukraine (for example).

Yes, because the climate/weather has an effect on our mood. Since there are very few indoor activities that could keep us physically and mentally fit in the winter there is a tendency for us to be more depressed and feel so down and unhappy. Also, in cold countries, human (our) bodies still get a good supply of energy from the food we eat but we consumed less so, I think this imbalance affect our mood and make us feel so unhappy

it is proven that people are living in hot countries are happier, the light of sun makes people talkative , outgoing and sociable.
I live in Tehran the city which have four season , our winter are not so cold as in Russia or Finland.
But you can see people that have more fun in summer and do most of their journey in summer and spring .
Studies shows that Finish people and others who live in cold area of the world are more isolated and less happier than who live in hot location.
In south of our county the weather is hotter and more humid and southern people are known for being gregarious and outdoor.
It is obvious that when the weather is cold people like to be in home to not feeling the coldness.

one thing sure and true, it's difficult to talk or smile in cold climate... it's as if my facial muscles are frozen too... and the elasticity of the skin on our faces change too. :-D

In my opinion, happiness can or can't be evaluated on such a weather condition, however, there are some people who actually live on a 'summer weather' places get used to it, and the results are obvious- they’re happy. I think the weather relation to happiness is a broad topic that can simplify in to a simple answer- it depends on what the person really like. That simple answer can also be divided in to many aspects that co-relates about definition of happiness. Some of the examples can be; birth place of the person, where person grew up, medical condition or the most common reason that I’ve heard- want some changes.

Furthermore, most of those people who’ll tell you that they more like it to live in hot places, where the ones who are used to live in a cold places, or not so hot outdoor community are have more liking in a place where they can do new things that can’t be done before. In the end, my answer response to this post, happiness can be evaluated depending on their reason.

Note: It’s my first time to post a response on this website. Please do understand my ‘bad’ English. I’m still on the process on improving my English literacy (especially on grammar).

That's completely incorrect! Being happy or not does not depend on where you live. It just depends on yourself!
i agree with you , since i live in a hot country and we have a lot of depressed people . and i have a friend who live in a very cold country in the most time of the year , and his country has the same issue .. so it depend on you to happy or not

I've been in many warm countries, and also in cold countries. People who live in hot climate seem happier than in cold countries. I think this is due to the fact that in a warmer climate is a lot of sun, which affects our mood

People who live in very cold countries seem more miresable than people who live in hot climates, because they have worse life conditions f.ex. someone who live in Antarctic firstly has to haunt sth to eat and trying to keep warm in different ways. Secondly should prepare incredible warm clothes, so he also has to haunt sth to use their natural skin. Thirdly he has to live in sofiety to keep alive. In my opinion above factors make this person miresable. To compare someone who lives in hot country can live alone and he does not have sew clothes. I know that , despite the fact they can live in drough areas , I agree with opinion they seem look better than people who live in cold climates.
