Happiness and celebration of small things: there is room for improvement
Despite the fact that the last two years have proved difficult and challenging for everyone, joy and celebration have remained a part of our lives. Based on the responses of the research participants, it can be said that overall we consider ourselves happier, we still love and have the opportunity to celebrate. This is definitely a positive result, but there is certainly room for improvement: only 37% of Hungarians consider themselves really happy and only one in two (22%) people think that everyday little things should be celebrated. Among the three countries, Romanians think they are happiest (48%) and 52% think that even small things are worth celebrating.

We celebrate: Birthdays, Holidays and Major Life Events
The results of the survey show that encounters and joyful moments with our loved ones are decisive in our lives.

At Diageo, we believe that living and celebrating these moments is important for overall happiness and maintaining mental health. ” said Mónika Pais, Managing Director of Diageo Budapest.
Young people celebrate more active life events, such as marriage, graduation, promotion, much more than the older generations. Women typically celebrate all kinds of occasions more regularly than their male counterparts, and there is a greater need among them to experience and celebrate small, everyday results and joys.
Family, friends, partying and restaurant
The results of the Diageo Celebration Index research confirm that partying and eating in a restaurant is the most popular choice when it comes to celebrations – almost half of Hungarians in ceremonial ways, but there are many who choose to relax at home as a celebration. The Czechs like to party the most, while relaxing at home precedes the restaurant meal for Romanians.
Respondents prefer to celebrate with family and friends. Friends are more important to young adults, while family is more important to older generations on such occasions. In addition to more valuable gifts, celebrating holidays and experiences is becoming more and more popular when it comes to giving as gifts. Research shows that young people and women also prefer to give gifts with handmade gifts as well.
Overall, for the Hungarian respondents, the immediate family, the relaxed atmosphere, and the delicious food are the most important ingredients for the perfect celebration, but quality drinks are also important elements for many. The family has all three firsts, but the Czech and Romanian fillers have delicious food in second place and the Czechs have third place in terms of friends when it comes to the key elements of the celebration.
