Denmark has an international reputation for being one of the happiest nations in the world, and hygge is widely recognised to be the magic ingredient.
It loosely translates as a sense of comfort, togetherness, and well-being.
You know hygge when you feel it.
It is when you are cuddled up on a sofa with a loved one, or sharing comfort food with your closest friends. It is cake and a warm beverage displayed on an elegant but simple table setting with a lit candle.
