Happy Friends, Happy You?

Is it possible that having happy friends can increase your own happiness?  There is some evidence presented by studies at both Harvard Medical School and the University of California, San Diego which indicate this to be the case.  See the article “Having Happy Friends Can Make You Happy” for the details.  This happiness from happy friends spreads to multiple levels, and seems to have considerable staying power.

Interestingly enough, and thankfully, sadness does not follow the same pattern.
