In winter, the weather can be cold and grey, it is dark the whole day long.  When I'm feeling the chill and blues of the season, a dose of hygge helps - candle lights, a hot cup of "glögi", woolly socks and a good book.  

"Glögi", a type of mulled wine, is a favorite hot drink at Christmas time. It is usually made of red wine or red juice of some sort, mixed with spices like cardamon and cinnamon, then served with raisins and almonds.

The noun hygge includes something nice, cozy, safe and known, referring to a psychological state. Hygge is a Danish and Norwegian word which can be described as a quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being.

  1. Indeed a warm, cosy - hygge - scenery, love this postcard!

  2. It is not so cold here today. But anyway... the bear makes me jealous!

  3. Love the postcard and the cultural information! I think I've tried mulled wine once or twice but I don't have proper recollection of the taste. It would be nice to try it again sometime in the future. I'm looking forward into hygge during the long stretch of Christmas and New Year's weekends. :D
