Why "A Little Happy"?

Back when I lived in the Mississippi Delta, a group of us got together for little impromptu birthday lunch celebration at a local catfish joint. Some of us staked our claim at a table while someone else ran over to the grocery for some cupcakes and VOILA!!! A party created! Anywho, one person had a little foresight to grab a "little something" for the guest of honor as she headed out earlier. As she made her presentation to the birthday girl, she proclaimed...

"It's just a little happy."

That phrase has been imbedded in my mind ever since! A "happy" is any little "something" given "just because". Nothing really extravagant just a way of letting someone know that you are thinking about them.
