What is "hygge"?
And how long will it take for American consumerism to ruin it?
For extra credit: are kittens and puppies hyggelige? Or only long-time family-member cats and dogs? And if so, which? with reasoned answers.
"hygge" is a kind of contentment that steals over you when you have a feeling of being anchored in a cosy moment, where people are agreeable and everything is alright for the time being. If that includes having a purring cat on your lap, then the cat is also part of the "hygge".
