convivial is a synonym of 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

warm and convivial
The host was warm and convivial, and quickly made the guests feel welcome.
