Hygge, pronounced (pronounced hue-guh) is a Danish word that essentially describes the feeling, moment, or little pleasures associated with being warm, cozy and happy with your loved ones. The Danish are definitely onto something, and a recent United Nations World Happiness Report found that the Danish are some of the happiest people in the world.
