Hygge Author Charlotte Abrahams Summary Ë 9 ☆ Candlelight is hygge; the smell of freshly brewed coffee is hygge; the feel of crisp clean bed linen is hygge; dinner with friends is hygge 'Hygge' pronounced 'hoo ga' is a Danish philosophy that roughly translates to 'cosiness' But it is so much than that It's a way of life that encourages Things It's an entire attitude to life that results in Denmark regularly being voted one of the happiest countries in the world So with two divorces behind her and her 50th birthday rapidly approaching journalist Charlotte Abrahams ponders whether it's hygge that's been missing from her life Is it a philosophy we can all embrace In a society where lifestyle trends tend to centre on deprivation be it no sugar no gluten no possessions what does che.
