The Danish concept of hygge is one which has grown in popularity in recent years, as have the Nordic Noir genre of TV series and crime fiction books, not to mention New Nordic cuisine. The concept of hygge is about taking time out from the hustle and bustle of life to relax and enjoy time with family and friends, celebrate the small joys of life and slow down the pace of life. Hygge embodies the values of equality which is central to Danish life and society, which international surveys often rank as amongst the happiest in the world.
