Christmas Hygge

Here is my annual Christmas poem. This year it was inspired by our trip to Norway and Sweden. Hygge is translated “cozy” and describes the healthy, happy Scandinavian way of life.

Pictured is a Swedish Christmas scene and wooden figurines. Notice the long blonde braids on the girl and the woolly bread on the little Santa with his hat pulled down just over his bulbous nose.  Enjoy the poem and Happy Hygge all year long!


Christmas Hygge

Tis the season to Hygge,
that Scandinavian happy way,
put boot prints in the snow
to gather fragrant greens.
Hang your homemade wreath
to welcome friends and fam.
It is social time, fika time
sweet treats and sips of something warm.
Cozy up and hygge on
all nyttår (new year) long!
