    Cool Expressions related to being happy

    Here are some expressions use to descibe happiness. I posted them bacause i think they may be of use to some learners in this forum.

    To be floating/walking on air
    To (be/feel) over the moon
    To look full of the springs of life
    To be walking on air
    To feel on top of the world
    To be thrilled to bits
    If an event makes you very happy we say ""it sent me into raptures.

    It will be nice if teachers or natives may add any other common expressions. Informal expressions are equally welcome as well.
