    It gives us Vitamin D? They have researched the relationship of seasonal affective disorder and vitamin D. Good Question!

    because when sun is out we also gets some free time so makes us cheer and our soul also more active at night so feels relax and also can hide many things this makes us secure.

    Everything seems brighter when the sun comes out.  Things seem warmer and everyone gets more enthusiastic.  You start thinking about vacations, the beach, the park, etc.  Also, you can soak up the sun and the Vitamin D.

    Although I generally feel better when the sun is out, how much I smile or don't smile pretty much remains the same.  Then again, maybe I make an unpleasant more when the sun is out.

    Between having to squint, or having a headache because of too much sun, I spend a lot of time with a less pleasant expression on my face when it's sunny out.  smile   (I don't ever wear sunglasses because a) I hate the way they look, b) I hate to view the world through them, and c) I have the (perhaps unwarranted or even ignorant) concern that if I interfere with my eyes' chance to adjust to natural light I might face a "use-it-or-lose" kind of thing (if not now, at an older age).  (By the way, it's a myth that squinting for years in adult life causes crow's feet.  I've been using the squinting method for decades now - no crow's feet (although I can make some temporary crow's feet if I really, really, really, squint.   smile  ).

    The sun has an overall positive effect on our attitude.  I lived in the Northwest for five years.  On the days that the sun is out there, it is an extremely beautiful and inspiring place.  At the same time one  can go for weeks without seeing the sun and at the same time experiencing long periods of light, misting, rainfall.  The first year I lived there, I said, "Gee, it's raining, I'm depressed."  After three years of living there, I said, "Gee, I'm depressed but don't know why.  There are high rates of alcoholism and suicides in some of the small towns there especially west of the Cascades.  There are also many angry people. The lack of sunshine plays heavily into the formula. WB

    love Ashantina's answer...and I agree with her. I'm naturally drawn to light...whether it be the sun or firelight. Perhaps I was a moth in my other life? lol

    The sun has a physiological effect on humans. I believe we smile for the same reason my cat searches out a spot in the sunny to bask in. Most creatures seem to enjoy the sun, it is after all the source of life on this planet....father sun,  mother earth
