Jeg blev nysgerrig efter at se denne bog, efter at have hørt rygter om at “hygge” er ved at være et begreb, som nu rækker ud over landets grænser.
Det er bestemt en bog, som lever op til sin titel. Bogen inddrager undersøgelser om dit og dat og kommer bredt rundt om begrebet hygge. Den giver et lille kik til emner som samvær, brødbagning, filmaftener, hyggebukser, snobrød, gløg, slow food og meget andet.
Jeg har ikke læst bogen fra ende til anden, men bladret og kigget. Og for en ’simple-slow-living-instagram-agtig-drømmer’ som mig, er det … ren hygge.
“Denmark is often said to be the happiest country in the world. That’s down to one thing: hygge.
‘Hygge has been translated as everything from the art of creating intimacy to cosiness of the soul to taking pleasure from the presence of soothing things. My personal favourite is cocoa by candlelight…’
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 those crisp blue mornings when the light through your window is just right.
