Ever since hygge became a buzzword, there are more and more publications dedicated to this subject, and since the concept is closely linked to the Danish way of living, several Danish authors decided to share their ideas on what it is and what it means to hygge. Even though this concept is not a new thing for me, because when living in Scandinavia hygge is something you are very much used to (for more, read How to Hygge? ), I was still intrigued to read how can one write about it for those who weren’t born into it.
“Hygge. The Danish Art of Happiness.” is a pleasant, heartwarming book about coming together and experiencing the joy of little things, whether it is a lazy evening by candlelights, playing boardgames with friends or the smell of freshly baked bread rolls, the common ground is in feeling happy, cozy and relaxed, it is about living authentic and being grateful for simple pleasures that life has to offer.
