go to hyggeling restaurants; entertain hyggelig visitors; play hyggelig games; work at hyggelig jobs; go on hyggelig trips; etcA lot of creating hygge is common sense but if you want some pointers Wiking provides a guide Use lots of candles The Danes place candles everywhere in bedrooms living rooms bathrooms classrooms boardrooms etc Place dim lighting in strategic locations Wiking recommends light fixtures designed by Poul Henningsen whose lamps provide soft diffuse light Create a feeling of togetherness with friends and relatives; togetherness is 'like a hug without touching' Maintain a healthy work life balance Spend a lot of time with your family Socilaize with friends and colleagues Good food Danish people like meat and potatoesand they love sweets especially cake A traditional feature of Danish children's birthday parties is 'Cakeman' a pastry in the shape of a large gingerbread man decorated with flags sweets and candlesIn the book Wiking includes recipes for a few of his favorite Danish dishes One is called Skipperlabskovs Skipper Stew which is brisket sitting in potato mash served wtih pickled beets and rye bread Hot beverages Danes love coffee If you watch Danish TV series the characters are always making coffee drinking coffee and offering each other coffeelike tea in British TV seriesLOL Comfortable clothing For professional wear Danish men like a T shirt or sweater under a blazer usually in black or gray Danes don't favor three piece suits For casual wear Danes like a comfortable jumperwith leggings for girls or skinny jeans for boys And Danes LOVE scarves Casual hairdos Danish hairstyles are 'wake up and go'or maybe a loose bun for women Comfortable furnishings Danes enjoy interior decorating and their decor often includes wood furniture vintage items and an open fireplace andor a wood burning stove Blankets and cushions Necessary for snuggling up and getting cozyAfter providing this overview of hygge Wiking goes on to talk about how to be hyggelig outside the home; during every month of the year from January to December; and during every season of the year Wiking also describes various hyggelig experiences he's had with his friends and writes about his happiness researchWiking's suggestions for hyggelig pastimes include things like spend a weekend in a cabin; have a cooking party with your friends; go out on a rowboat and bring a picnic basket; put couches in your office; have a movie night with popcorn; go to a hyggelig restaurant and order pickled herring and schnapps; buy confections at a bakery; enjoy exhibitions of Christmas lights; have smorrebrod an open sandwich on rye bread with beer or schnapps; read a good book; and so onYou can probably think up hundreds of 'hyggelig' activities yourself For example here's one invite a couple of friends over; watch Netlfix; bring in Mexican food; drink sangriaand later on have chocolate eclairs for dessert If you have some hygge suggestions feel free to comment belowWiking sums up his treatise on hygge by noting that a complete hygge experience includes 'taste sound smell and texture' Hyggelig tastes are familiar and sweet Hyggelig sounds might be the crackling of burning wood; the pitter patter of raindrops; and trees waving in the breeze Hyggelig smells could be aromas that trigger fond memories Hyggeling textures might be wooden surfaces; smooth ceramic cups; and reindeer furI feel like I gained a pretty good understanding of hygge from Wiking's book However Wiking's numerous suggestions for 'hyggelig experiences' got very repetitiveand after awhile it seemed like a lot of padding to have enough words for an entire bookStill if you're curious about hygge this is a good crash course
