Have you heard about hygge?
Pronounced “hue-gah,” it’s a trend that began in Denmark and has exploded in America. The term “hygge” loosely translates to “coziness,” but it really means creating a warm, comforting atmosphere.
We’ve been seeing a lot of news stories about this idea lately, perhaps because this is a time of year where the outside world feels anything but warm and comforting.
For kids, it means long days at school, coming home at dusk and staring at a backyard covered in snow or icicles hanging from their basketball hoop.
