On a nationwide level, the tears of joy emoji was the most commonly used. The same held true for Texas, where like the rest of the U.S., we feel 😂 more than any other emotion. The study then broke down exactly which states are the happiest, saddest and angriest, and Texas was among the happiest! How could we not be with the bright blue skies, Whataburger and Shiner?
