This list is very interesting, because first of all I never such a word ever even existed. But this is a phenomena that I know personally I feel and have never been able to explain it, but it's one of the reasons I love winter.

It's something I look forward to every November. I look forward to the first day we fall into the 20's. And if we get snow, even better. But the 20's is where I determine my wife and I can turn on the fireplace for the first time in the winter. And having hot cocoa in front of the fireplace on a blizzardy night is one of the best feelings in the world.

I guess some people experience "SAD" (seasonal affective disorder) in the winter. Not me at all. I am happy in the winter and apparently am a proponent of "Hygge" lol.

Quote:
"Hygge" is the Danish concept of creating cozy environments that foster well-being and contentment. Many Americans have eagerly adopted hygge over the past few years and Sperling's BestPlaces has now determined the Top Hygge Cities in the U.S.

Hygge experts agree that while the concept is flexible, its most common attributes include relaxing in front of a fireplace, sipping on a warming beverage (tea, wine, coffee, brandy, etc), hanging out with friends and family, and the liberal use of candles, blankets, and comfort food.

I agree db. I don't know what it is, but I love just lighting a fire, drawing the curtains and I usually have a cold one, and snuggling in. For some reason I also like being in the car (truck) when it's not to great out (but not to bad) with the heat blasting and good tunes on the radio. Some how it's a comfortable feeling.


But I've never heard the word Hygge before.

100% agreed on both fronts JW! I love dark beers and a nicely poured Porter with a lot of foam is fantastic on a winter night. And I also agree about driving. I have a large SUV and there's just something about putting it in 4 wheel drive mode and pushing through the snow in the toasty truck that I just love.
