Swedish Secrets for a Happy Holiday Season
With all the rush to buy gifts and make everything “perfect,” it’s easy to lose the true meaning and purpose of the holidays — enjoying opportunities to spend time and break bread with family and friends.
Here are a couple of ideas that may help you to make your holidays both meaning-full and peace-full.
Think of making your celebration lagom.
Lagom (pronounced LA-gom) is a Swedish word/philosophy of living with “just the right amount.” It suggests that a rewarding life is also a responsible one — neither sacrificing what you love, nor taking more than you need.
And then, have a very hygge holiday!
Hygge (pronounced HUE-GUH) is a Danish word used to acknowledge a special feeling or moment. It can be alone or with friends, at home or out, ordinary or extraordinary but is always cozy, charming or special
However you celebrate them, wishing you happy, lagom holidays and a joyful, hygge New Year!
