Hygge is as Danish as pork roast and cold beer and it goes far in illuminating the Danish soul. In essence, hygge means creating a nice, warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people around you. The warm glow of candlelight is hygge.
The Danish word "hygge" (sounds a bit like “hooga”) roughly translates to coziness. However, that definition doesn’t quite cover it.
