    What does the Danish term hygge mean? Answered

    While hygge (pronounced “hue-guh”) doesn’t have a direct translation in English, it is used to describe a cozy and content feeling. If you are curled up by a fireplace with a cup of steaming tea and a warm blanket, you are probably experiencing hygge.

    "Snug and cozy, in a comfortable way." It doesn't exactly translate to English, though.
    "And now? With no drunks? There ain't no bums.
    And with no bums, there ain't no muthafuckas to feed the ducks at the park.
