Hare Hare Yukai (ハレ晴レユカイ) (Sunny, Sunny Happiness) is the ending theme to the first season of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. The song is performed in Japanese by Aya Hirano, Minori Chihara and Yūko Gotō, the respective voices of the characters Haruhi Suzumiya, Yuki Nagato and Mikuru Asahina from the series. Also in each character song single, the voice actors sing their character's own version of Hare Hare Yukai, with lyric changes and sometimes rhythm and instrument changes.

Out of all of the contributions made by the Haruhi Suzumiya franchise, the dance that comes with the song at the end of every episode of the first season has become a cultural phenomenon in Japan. In anime conventions, it's never surprising to see at least one group of 3-5 people doing the dance with the Hare Hare Yukai song in the background. In a handful of expos, characters ranging from Darth Vader to Optimus Prime danced alongside Haruhi cosplayers. And in an even rarer occurrence, dozens of people participated in a number of Hare Hare Yukai dances all over Japan.

The dance's impact can be seen in many references on the internet. In the game League of Legends, each champion has a different dance (seen by typing /d in game). One character, Ezreal, performs a short section of the Hare Hare Yukai dance. In the game Overwatch, for its Anniversary event each character was given a new dance emote. The character Mei performs the dance as well with the emote called Sunny Dance.
