The Art of Hygge – Photobox style!
By now you’ve probably heard or at least seen the word hygge (pronounced hoo-gah). Hygge is the Danish phenomenon that hit the world in 2016. There is no English translation for the word however; in essence it means cosiness or the appreciation of cosiness and the nice things in life.
Sitting by the fire on a cold night, wearing big matching pyjamas and woolly socks, whilst enjoying a cuppa surrounded by candles. That’s hygge. Watching TV under a blanket, eating homemade food. Having friends over and drinking wine. They’re all hygge too.
