Meik Wiking’s Little Book of Hygge (pronounced Hoo-ga) is a warm, fuzzy read about the Dane’s warm, fuzzy traditions regarding coziness. It goes down like hot cocoa in front of a fire and that’s exactly how the Danes would want it. Wiking makes the case that Hygge is one of the main reasons Denmark is consistently rated as the happiest country in the world and I’m hard-pressed to disagree with his assessment what with all of the blankets and candles and hot apple cider and dinner parties and naps and vacations on display here. Curl up, enjoy and prepare to envy the great Danes.
