Word Nerd Header Apr 2016 via LaWhimsyjoyance definition Word Nerd via LaWhimsyJoyance is a joyous feeling or festivity. Joyance is an archaic term first used in the 1590’s that combines joy and -ance (a quality or state in this instance).

Joyance is a delightful, engaging term that means exactly what it is – a joyous, gladsome feeling.
