For example Korntal-Münchingen. On Sunday, the United Nations World Happiness Day, the “Instructions for Happiness” lecture by therapy clown Hans-Martin will take place at City Hall (5-7pm, places still available). The connoisseur knows immediately: the title is an allusion to the book “Instructions for Unhappiness” by the Austrian-American philosopher Paul Watzlawick (1921-2007). A standard job in matters of luck! The only problem is that you have to work for happiness over and over again. Not only in Korntal-Münchingen (don’t forget your mouth and nose protection). And since times are anything but happy right now and the four-leaf clover in the shadow of war and Corona is just as little help as outdated German idioms (shards, blacksmiths), we asked SZ correspondents and foreign experts for World Happiness Day how it is in other countries only looks like this, hopefully. martin zippers
