WHEN TO USE

What are other ways to say happy?

Happy is an adjective that emphasizes a pleasant ending or something that happens at just the right moment: By a happy accident, I received the package on time. Fortunate implies that success is obtained by the operation of favorable circumstances more than by direct effort; it is usually applied to grave or large matters (especially those happening in the ordinary course of things): fortunate in one’s choice of a partner; a fortunate investment. Lucky, a more colloquial word, is applied to situations that turn out well by chance: lucky at cards; my lucky day.
