Hygge meaning? What is hygge about?

In the last couple of years, you may have come across a certain word: Hygge. But what does it really mean exactly? First, let’s start with how you say it.

If you’ve ever enjoyed reading a book indoors on a rainy day or a cup of hot tea on a winter night, you’ve experienced it without even knowing it.

Hygge is such an important part of being Danish that it is considered “a defining feature of our cultural identity and an integral part of the national DNA,” according to Meik Wiking, the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen.

“In other words, what freedom is to Americans. . . hygge is to Danes.”

This national obsession with all things cozy is credited as one of the reasons why Denmark is always at the top of the list of the world’s happiest countries, despite their infamously miserable winters. And recently, the rest of the world has begun to catch on to this wonderful way of life.
