Pronounced “hyoo-guh,” this Danish word is said to have no direct translation in English, though “cozy” comes close. Associated with relaxation, indulgence, and gratitude, hygge has long been considered a part of the Danish national character. With so many cold, dark, days, the simple act of lighting a candle and enjoying a cup of coffee could make a huge difference to one’s spirit.
January is a wonderful time to engage in "Hygge"! Whether it is enjoying a glass of wine after a day at the slopes, a nice pasta dinner, or enjoying warm melty cheeses with friends and family, you are sure to feel the winter warmth.
