Happy Time

Have you ever noticed how analog clocks in catalogs and ads usually read 10:10?

The idea behind this (I've been told) is the clocks look "happy" at that time.

Why is the clock happy?

One theory is that the hands look like a smile.

We just started the 9:00 am schedule at church, starting with Sacrament Meeting. As that 70 minute meeting was ending yesterday, I looked up at the clock.

Maybe that's why 10:10 is considered a happy time.

I have never heard of this, what a cool bit of trivia! That's hilarious about sacrament meeting--I can verify that when you get our of sacrement at 4:00 it's not a happy time at all--no time left for that Sunday nap when you get home.

My kids would agree with you on that one -- the minute the sacrament ends is a very happy time indeed. :)

We just went to the 2-5 schedule. It means I get to sleep in, but it's weird to come out of church and see the setting sun.
