Definitely not happified!

Such consensus greatly cheerifies me.

I say, Mary Baker Eddy, steady on there!

Now I know why the Christian Scientists are such a happified lot. The things you learn on these boards!

Happyfy was used by William B. Ide in 1846 in his proclamation of independence for the California Reuplic.

Here's the sentence:
Quote:
He further declares that he believes that a Government to be prosperous and happyfying in its tendency must originate with its people who are friendly to its existence.
And that I grew up in Sonoma and was ignorant of this lovely word all these years. Sigh.


Ceci n'est pas un seing.

Amazing how we can live all our lives in an area and only find
out later on that something happened or exists we never knew
about. A real awakening. Has happened to me as well.

It's EDDYfying (especially given her definition!) to know one can go about happifying life. Would never have picked it as a legitimate word -won't be adopting it- but interesting to know it's there!
