What’s Hygge?

Sounds like “HYU-gha” this Danish word means…  Well see the links below 🙂

Similar to other Scandinavian cultures, a fundamental aspect of Danish culture is “hygge”. Hygge is a concept that evokes “coziness”, particularly when relaxing with good friends or loved ones and while enjoying good food. Christmas time, when loved ones sit close together on a cold rainy night, is a true moment of hygge, as is grilling apølse (Danish sausage) and drinking a beer on a long summer evening.[4][dubious ]
