There is a fundamental Danish concept known as hygge, denoting the time spent with good friends and family, usually whilst eating or drinking. It’s a lovely thought to find that there are word such as these to explain these feelings, and that it’s so culturally engrained… I wish we had similar aspects in the UK!
