Last year, hygge took second place to Brexit for word of the year. This year's word of the year is "fake news." I prefer hygge. I feel hygge can make a difference for good in our lives, our homes, our homemaking, our parenting, communities, and our homeschools. Have you heard of hygge? Hygge is a Danish concept, similar to gemütlichkeit in German, koselig in Norwegian, mysig in Swedish, gezelligheid in Dutch, and there is no one word translation into English.
According to the site hyggehouse.com:
“The Danish word hygge (pronounced hue-gah) is a feeling or mood that comes from taking genuine pleasure in making ordinary everyday things simply extraordinary; whether it’s making coffee a verb by lingering over a cup, to a cosy evening in with friends to lighting a candle with every meal … Words like coziness, security, familiarity, comfort, reassurance, fellowship, simpleness and living well are often used to describe the idea of Hygge.”
So, in my understanding, hygge is being comfortable, contented, present, warm, a good atmosphere, simplicity, enjoying life's simple pleasures, a feeling of well-being, replenishing, and quality time with self, family, or friends.
