"I'm told it's a Danish word," said my friend. "I think it's pronounced either 'hig-guh' or 'hoo-guh,' and it has something to do with simple pleasures. All I know for sure is that I've sold several different books in the past few weeks with "hygge" in the title. It's really getting popular." PineandLakes.com Illustration

That maiden year the first big snowfall started on Thanksgiving afternoon. As fallen autumn leaves were laid to rest beneath a shroud of white, we belatedly came to realize how ill-prepared we were.
