"The Cheering Charms had left them with a feeling of great contentment."
—The after-effects of the spell[src]

The Cheering Charm (incantation unknown) is a charm that makes the target feel happy. When the spell is overdone, it can cause the victim to be overcome with fits of hysterical laughter.[1]

History

The charm was invented by Felix Summerbee sometime between the mid-15th century and 1508.

Professor Flitwick taught Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and the rest of the class this charm in Harry's third year. Hermione Granger missed it due to distractions by Draco Malfoy's bullying. This distressed her greatly, as she suspected Professor Flitwick might test them on the charm in their end-of-year exams, Later that year, the third year students were indeed tested on the Cheering Charm during their exams. Harry very much overdid his and Ron (his partner) had to be led away to a quiet room.[1]

The written Charms O.W.L. in 1996 included a question about Cheering Charms.[2]
