Happy, Texas--The Town Without a Frown

Yes, there really is a place called "Happy." I've been thinking for a while about posting a little about our town. We'll start today with some frequently asked questions and interesting facts.


Is everyone "happy in Happy?" For the most part, yes. If you would have asked that question on Saturday when the wind was blowing around 70 mph there might have been some who were unhappy.

The film Happy, Texas was not filmed here. We have very few trees and certainly have no orange groves. As far as the plot of the movie, to my knowledge nothing remotely like that has ever happened here.

A Blue Bell Ice Cream commercial was filmed here when I was a kid. At that time Blue Bell was only available in the area close to the Blue Bell plant. The commercial said something like, "We'd be happier in Happy if we had Blue Bell Ice Cream."

Parts of the movie Leap of Faith with Steve Martin were filmed in Happy and in the area. Also, a French film did some shooting here.

Happy has a population of around 675. We have one fillin' station, 1 cafe, 4 churches, 1 fantastic school (K-12), 2 grain elevators, and 1 bank (Happy State Bank). What we lack in size we make up for in the type of community we are. More on Happy (how we got our name, some history) this week as time permits.

I love it! One school? amazing, but how it should be. I'd love to see some photos of your town sometime.

What is really crazy to think about is that my school is bigger than all of Happy. Wish my kids could go to school there like we did!

Even with the 70 mph winds I was still happy in Happy as long as I was inside! I love Happy so much. We moved away for 4 yrs when we were newly weds and the whole time I could not wait to just move back to my home in Happy! Ben and I love raising our family here and hope to grow old here too. Hope Happy always stays the same.

Granny Sue--Pictures to come, this week turned crazy with class Easter party, community Easter egg hunt, and life in general.

Janda--I wouldn't live anywhere else, either.

Jennifer--we wish your kids (and you) were here,too.
