The Danes have a word – hygge – that describes “a feeling or moment, whether alone or with friends, at home or out, ordinary or extraordinary as cosy, charming or special”. Although a range of situations and sentiments may be labelled as “hygge”, it applies perfectly to one time of year in particular: the holiday season. After all, there are few occasions that are more delightful (or perhaps dysfunctional…) than Christmas with your loved ones. While you may be partial to putting your feet up and spending Christmas at home, you’ll find that Denmark takes the peace, togetherness and joy
