    Default Hygge -- deliciously Si+Fi

    http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-343...adio_and_music

    Sitting by the fire on a cold night, wearing a woolly jumper, while drinking mulled wine and stroking a dog - probably surrounded by candles. That's definitely "hygge".

    Eating home-made cinnamon pastries. Watching TV under a duvet. Tea served in a china set. Family get-togethers at Christmas. They're all hygge too.

    ...


    "Hygge could be families and friends getting together for a meal, with the lighting dimmed, or it could be time spent on your own reading a good book," she says. "It works best when there's not too large an empty space around the person or people." The idea is to relax and feel as at-home as possible, forgetting life's worries.

    ...

    "There isn't so much enforced deprivation in Denmark. Instead you're kinder to yourselves and so each other. Danes don't binge then purge - there's not much yo-yo dieting in Denmark. No wonder they're happier than we are in the UK."

    Thanks for sharing this. My husband [SLI] and I love Hygge - we just didn't know there was a word for it. Its a favorite thing we both like to achieve. Daily if possible. It makes being at home our favorite place. So hygge definitely has a comfortable comfortable place here in Delta. But probably everyone likes hygge.

    I am firming up my plans to make sure Christmas Day is a good hygge day for everyone here.

    This is sort of how I feel when I read a really good book, though there are other things and situations that also produce the feeling. I always equate it with eating rich, dark chocolate.

    Yes, I saw someone else talk about this in another group.

    It is ... of some delta essence in a way.

    Sounds like something anyone could enjoy and could appeal to anyone's sensation.
