"Hygge" is a lifestyle that has been embraced in the Danish culture since the early 1800's. In 2016 this lifestyle trend took off in the United Kingdom after several books about hygge were published. The popularity of hygge has since spread to the United States.
While it has different meanings to different people and different cultures, in essence, hygge means creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people,” according to the Visit Denmark website. “The warm glow of candlelight is hygge. Friends and family—that’s hygge too. There’s nothing more hygge than sitting round a table, discussing the big and small things in life.”
This Danish obsession with all things cozy is credited as one of the reasons why Denmark is considered one of the world’s happiest countries, despite infamous miserable winters.
