Brits have voted The Royal Wedding as their ‘Feel Good Moment of 2011’.
A study of 2,000 people into the uplifting events of the past twelve months found that Prince William’s marriage to Kate Middleton on April 29th was the country’s feel good moment of the year.
The research, which was commissioned by The Feel Good Drinks Company, also revealed the top films, television, sporting moments and songs that got the nation smiling in 2011.
Steve Cooper, co-founder and spokesman for Feel Good Drinks said: “There’s been a lot of doom and gloom around lately and it would be easy to miss all the great things that have happened.”
“However, the survey has shown there’s actually a lot of optimism out there and it just goes to show what a feel good bunch we Brits really are!
“The Royal Wedding was understandably the feel good moment of 2011, with the kiss on the balcony and a certain bridesmaid’s dress being particularly memorable. It was a great opportunity to celebrate our tradition and heritage, it also proved once again that we know how to throw a good party.”
The survey also demonstrated that it’s not just the moments we share as a nation that make us feel good. Indeed, more than a quarter of people picked their summer holiday as their personal feel-good moment of 2011, while a child’s birthday, promotion and a family wedding were other common highlights.
