Hard to explain and even harder to pronounce, the Danish word "hygge"
(pronounced "hoo-gah") has exploded in popularity around the world. It
translates roughly to "cosiness," but it means so much more than that.
In essence, hygge means creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the
good things in life with good people. The warm glow of candlelight is
hygge. Cosying up with a loved one for a movie – that’s hygge, too. And
there's nothing more hygge than sitting around with friends and family,
discussing the big and small things in life. Perhaps hygge explains why
the Danes are some of the happiest people in the world. ~VisitDenemark.com
