I recently learned that #hygge is a thing.
Apparently it’s been trending all year. (I need to get out more.)
Pronounced “hoo-ga” or “hue-gah,” it’s a Danish concept. You may of heard that the Danish are the happiest people in the world. Denmark is also home to some of the best crime writers on the planet. Don’t try to reconcile these two facts — it will only perplex you.
According to one translation, the word hygge means “candlelit uterus.” While that might make some of you a little squeamish, I suppose it is another example of the idea of “nesting.”
