What’s a hygge?

Hygge. It’s a Danish thing.”
“What does it mean?”
“It’s hard to explain, it’s just something that all Danes know about. It’s like having a cosy time.”
“Is it a verb? Or an adjective?”
“It can be both. Staying home and having a cosy candlelit time is hygge.”

note: Quotations are from The Year of Living Danishly Uncovering the Secrets of the World’s Happiest Country by Helen Russell. The book is hilarious and informative.
