May your year be hyggeligt!

hygge_1024x1024It’s currently -23 C with a windchill of -32 C in our fair city of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.  But it is beautiful and sunny.  The backyard is a picture postcard.  Others are complaining all over Facebook and Twitter and elsewhere.  But I am loving this day.  I feel…well…positively Canadian.

Danes make it through the frostiest part of their year (and beyond) by creating an atmosphere of hygge, a difficult-to-translate word that connotes warmth, hearth, family, conviviality, hospitality, togetherness, mirth and cheer and more, all at once.  Russell McLendon has a nifty article about the concept on Mother Nature Network.

It’s been that kind of season here at the olde house.  I hope to continue our sense of hygge through the coming chill weeks and all the months of 2015.

Here’s wishing the same for you!  Happy new year.
