What is hygge?
There isn’t an exact translation for hygge in English – it’s often defined as ‘cosy’ but there’s more to it than that. Hygge is a feeling that you have when you are spending time in a comfortable place with the people you love. It’s a warm feeling, of inner peace and of relaxation.
While it’s not the same as ‘cosy’, it’s true that cosy things can help enhance the feeling. Warm fires, wooly blankets, thick socks, intimate lighting, hot chocolates, tasty snacks… All of these things can help you towards hygge, as well as having the people you love around you.
