A Danish word pronounced hue-gah or hoo-guh, hygge denotes a quality of coziness, contentment and well-being.
Whether we realize it or not, Huron County has been practicing the hygge lifestyle for years. Between hunkering down in the coziness by a fire, and getting outside to take in the magic of a fresh, fallen snow, Ontario’s West Coast is a great place to be during some of the darkest days of the year.
This winter, take part in activities designed to enjoy while embracing your hygge. From virtual classes and online concerts, to author readings and winter light displays, find the warmth and ease of hygge in Huron.
“Hygge is about an atmosphere and an experience, rather than about things. It is about being with the people that we love. A feeling of home. A feeling that we are safe, that we are shielded from the world and allow ourselves to let our guard down.”
