Pleas·ant, n. A wit; a humorist; a buffoon. [Obs.]
1. Pleasing; grateful to the mind or to the senses; agreeable; as, a pleasant journey; pleasant weather.
Behold, how good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! --Ps. cxxxiii. 1.
2. Cheerful; enlivening; gay; sprightly; humorous; sportive; as, pleasant company; a pleasant fellow.

Syn: -- Pleasing; gratifying; agreeable; cheerful; good-humored; enlivening; gay; lively; merry; sportive; humorous; jocose; amusing; witty.
Usage: -- Pleasant, Pleasing, Agreeable. Agreeable is applied to that which agrees with, or is in harmony with, one's tastes, character, etc. Pleasant and pleasing denote a stronger degree of the agreeable. Pleasant refers rather to the state or condition; pleasing, to the act or effect. Where they are applied to the same object, pleasing is more energetic than pleasant; as, she is always pleasant and always pleasing. The distinction, however, is not radical and not rightly observed.
adj 1: affording pleasure; being in harmony with your taste or
likings; "a pleasant person to be around"; "we had a
pleasant evening together"; "a pleasant scene";
"pleasant sensations" [ant: unpleasant]
2: pleasant in manner or behavior; "I didn`t enjoy it and
probably wasn't a pleasant person to be around"
