If you’re looking to have the ultimate cozy Christmas, you’re in the right place! I made a free printable Hygge Christmas Advent Calendar that will have you enjoying the spirit of the season all month long!
If you’re new to hygge, let me explain…
To put it briefly, hygge is the Danish art of coziness. Sounds pretty great already, right? But it’s more than just being comfortable. In addition to incorporating fluffy blankets and candlelight, hygge includes other important elements such as nature, spending time with close friends and family, baking, reading and crafting instead of screen time.
Rather than throwing a lavish party or going out to a fancy restaurant, hygge would have you staying in, wearing pjs, and watching a movie from the couch with your loved ones, preferably with the fireplace roaring.
Let’s talk about how to pronounce this word, before we go further. The simplest way to explain it is to say “HOO-guh.” BUT, to avoid sounding American as all get out, try adding the tiniest “ee” sound before the “oo” and barely pronounce the “guh.”
Got it? Good!
