The Next Chapter: Hancock Library Column


The Holidays are sure sneaking up on us fast! We're about to lose another hour of daylight and soon we'll be hibernating in our homes for the winter. While some embrace the winter and get outdoors for winter activities, others find it long, and start to get cabin fever not long after it has begun. What do you do to beat the winter blues? One way to embrace the winter is by getting cozy. The Danish refer to this as Hygge.

Hygge (/ˈhjuːɡə/ HEW-gə or /ˈhuːɡə/ HOO-gə) is a Danish and Norwegian word which can be described as a quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being. This is regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture. They embrace winter as a time to slow down enjoy spending time with one another, a time of reflection and thankfulness. So grab your favorite book, a cup of hot chocolate and get hygge.
