Merry Christmas from Skandinavisk
As millions of friends and families come together to enjoy each other’s company and savour the magic of Christmas, what the world actually experiences is some kind of universal hygge moment.
The concept of Christmas is as diverse and ubiquitous as that of hygge. It means many different things to many different people and seems to have become much more of a prioritised shared moment than it is a religious festival – a time to embrace the present, take time out from the pressures of daily life, and savour precious time with loved ones.
A scale version of hygge, if you like. God jul!
