Hygge – what is it?

Do you ever just sit there sometimes, quiet and content, in love with your surroundings, wearing your comfiest clothes with your favourite people around you or reading your favourite book?

Yeah, me too.

The word for this is Hygge.

Hygge is a Danish word and has quite recently become a strong characteristic for Danish culture.

Hygge comes from the Danish word for wellbeing. However it is also thought it could derive from the word hugge which is hug or even hygga which means to comfort! Cute!

This word has swept across Europe and America in the last 2 years and is pronounced ‘hoo-ga’

So next time you’re trying to take some time out – think Hygge!!

We continue to learn something new every day!

Where’s your Hygge place? Let me know!
