Hole In The Wall



= デンマーク語で"cozy"を意味する、「幸せの秘訣」。髭じゃなくてこれで「フーガ」と読むらしい。


After landing on the shortlist for word of the year in 2016, hygge continues to steal the spotlight as the subject of a slew of recent books — including "The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets of Happy Living," "Hygge: The Danish Art of Happiness," "Hygge: The Nordic Secrets to a Happy Life," and "The Book of Hygge: The Danish Art of Contentment, Comfort and Connection" — as well as high-profile newspaper and magazine articles dubbing it the hottest thing since Marie Kondo's life-changing magic of tidying up. 


So what does it mean? It's been translated almost everywhere as "cozy" and as it turns out, some of the key elements of hygge include warm blankets, woolly socks and sweaters, hot drinks and fireplaces.
