Glee is a good term for an acute or ecstatic pleasure that expresses itself in mirthfulness and other demonstrative signs of large spirits. Joviality is experience or character which, becoming itself homosexual, merry, or jolly, brings others in to the exact same feeling; the phrase is typically used in an excellent feeling.
