It’s this time of the year when autumn evenings are long, the sun quickly sinks below the horizon and the last golden leaves fall softly onto the ground. Are you feeling low spirited? If you do, Danes know the perfect panacea. Brew an aromatic tea, open a quality wine, light the candles, have friends over and immerse yourself in the warmth and comfort of home. Hygge is the Danish art of happiness derived from simple things and activities: conversations, meetings with people close to your heart, a soft wool blanket, a mug of hot cocoa and the sound of a crackling fire. Let yourself indulge in hygge in an autumn-winter slow rhythm illuminated by the candlelight.
