The solution to today’s Wordle puzzle is feast. A feast is an abundant meal usually in celebration of a holiday or event, but since the word also doubles as a verb, you can say you feasted with your friends if you all took part in a feast, or that you feasted your eyes on something if it brought you great pleasure or gratification.
The word “feast” is from Middle English “feeste,” which borrows from Old French “feste,” (which is the source of Modern French “fête”) the word for a religious festival, party, holiday, market, or fair, which also translates as racket, jest, or mirth, or fun (via Etymonline). It also has roots in the Latin “festa,” which means holiday or feast, and is the source of the Italian word “festa” and Spanish “fiesta” of the same meaning.
