What is hygge?
This five-letter Scandinavian word is the epitome of warm feels
It is pronounced "HOO-gah," and don't worry, most in the western hemisphere would undoubtedly pronounce it wrong. It is essentially a way of life that celebrates moments that are extraordinarily cozy, charming or special. You can experience hygge alone or with friends or family. It doesn't require you to buy anything or do anything in particular, it is just pure peace. Why doesn't the English language have this all-encompassing, joyful word? That's okay, the Danes are willing to share their warm and fuzzy-feeling vernacular.
Grab a cup of tea, that book you've been meaning to read, wrap up, and experience some hygge.
