synonym for fun


adjective [ kuhn-viv-ee-uhl ]

convivial is another word for fun

Something that is convivial is friendly and agreeable, or festive. Convivial is a warm and social term; it's most often used to talk about gatherings of people who are in high spirits and enjoying one another's company, often sharing in a meal or refreshments. Its gregarious nature makes sense given its origin: convivial comes from the Latin noun meaning "feast." When describing a person, convivial means "merry company, jovial." Convivial is good company any time of year, but given its appetite for feasting and gathering, it's no wonder we hear convivial a little more around the holidays!

Commonly found as

convivial atmosphere
Everyone was enjoying the convivial atmosphere, laughing, chatting, and eating to their hearts' content.
warm and convivial
The host was warm and convivial, and quickly made the guests feel welcome.
