Over the past few months the Danish concept of Hygge (pronounced ‘hoo-ga’) has been popping up a lot, both online and in bookshops (I can think of three different recently published books on this subject). Nos últimos meses o conceito dinamarquês de Hygge (que se diz ‘hu-ga’) têm surgido muito, tanto online como em livrarias (lembro-me de pelo menos três livros recentemente publicados sobre este assunto).
