Hygge Festival

Downtown Grand Marais | Grand Marais MN

You may not yet know the definition of the Danish word hygge (pronounced hoo-gah), but chances are good that you have felt it. Hygge is the Danish ritual of embracing life’s simple pleasures. Feeling relaxed, cozy and surrounded by the warmth of family, friends, community and fire, hygge encourages us to embrace all of winter’s pleasures and unique opportunities.
