I read this lovely article on the BBC website yesterday about the Danish concept of Hygge. It has no direct translation into English, but Googling the word and discovering everyone’s different interpretations is really interesting!
In general terms, Hygge is all about happiness and togetherness – taking time for yourself and your loved ones in a cosy, homely setting. And Autumn is the perfect season to start embracing this! As the days get shorter and colder, I’ll definitely be getting into hibernation mode, and snuggling up at home with friends, family, good food and good conversation for my own little piece of Hygge.
Even the tiniest thing – such as lighting a few candles at the dinner table – can create a Hyggeligt atmosphere, and really give you an extra boost.
I’d love to hear what Hygge means to all of you!
