I have listed the following as Happy Words. What is it about these words that suggests that they are "Happy"?

Semicircle
Mesdemoiselles
Postmillennial
Assimilate
Snowmobile
Superfamilies


There are two hints. The second might give it away too easily so it is a few lines down the page!



Answer

The words all contain the letters S-M-I-L-E in order. They all have a smile, so they must be happy!

e.g. SeMicIrcLE

Hide




What Next?

A good cheerful teaser that I like a lot. And I did get it after the second hint.

Miles of smiles! Great teaser! And you were right, the second clue does kind of give it away.

I got it right away without the hints. When I saw the "ile" on the end of smowmobile I immediately thought, "I wonder if the word smile is in every word?" This teaser made me smile!

You spelled smile in the hint wrong. You put simile.

I think that was intentional. It says "one" of the shortest happy words. Why would you give the answer away in the hint?

After discovering the word "smile" I started looking for other emotional words that meant happiness. But look at what happens. Smile is in all the Answers...

Twains, it's supposed to be simile. The hint wasn't meant to give you the answer.
