What do comfy sweaters, candles, book clubs, and fall camping have in common? If you can’t quite put your finger on the word, maybe it’s because you’ve never heard it before! The answer is Hygge. Hygge is the Scandinavian word for a mood of coziness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment. It has become a defining characteristic of Danish culture. Since the Danes remain some of the happiest people in the world, it’s worth taking a look at hygge, which is thought to be one of the big reasons for their life satisfaction.
