Hygge



Given the popularity of the Hygge fad among the British middle class, it is perhaps surprising I haven't mentioned this before. Hygge is the Danish culture of coziness. It's all about woolly jumpers, warm fires and scented candles. It seems to be taking Britain by storm.

It's worth bearing in mind that in Denmark, people generally don't wear shoes indoors. Stomping around your house in shoes is very un-Hygge. Woolly socks are very essential to Hygge.

Never heard of Hygge. Its not exactly new to walk around the house in thick jumpers and sit in front of the fire(not wearing shoes)
I was doing this over 40 years ago and so were many people
