Well, according to a new report from Gallup and Healthways researchers, there's a pretty good chance that it was Dec. 25, Christmas.

The report -- which is based on 350,000 telephone surveys taken every day over the last year, asking about specific emotions a person experienced "yesterday" -- captured the happiest and saddest days of last year, as well as the general temperament of America during 2012.

Thanksgiving Day was a close second and New Year's Day took third place on the survey.

For the saddest days?

The "saddest" days of 2012, based on the lowest percentage of people experiencing a lot of happiness and enjoyment without a lot of stress or worry:

Aug. 22: Wednesday -- 40 percent

Sept. 17: Monday -- 40 percent

Sept. 20: Thursday -- 40 percent

Nov. 6: Tuesday, Election Day -- 40 percent

I would agree with the happiest days, it seems as though people smile more around Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Year's. What's your happiest day of the year? Anniversary, child's birthday, your birthday?
