What the heck is Hygge?

If you’re asking yourself what the heck hygge is, you’re probably not alone. Pronounced hue-gah or hoo-ga, the Norwegian word was originally used to mean well-being, but was later hijacked by nearby Denmark and used to connote a quality of cosiness and comfort that results in a feeling of contentment or well-being. In fact, the Danes have truly embodied the meaning of the word even on their darkest, coldest days, somehow remaining some of the happiest people in the world despite the region’s moody climes.
