The Concept of Hygge
“In essence, hygge means creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people. The warm glow of candlelight is hygge. Cozying up with a loved one for a movie – that’s hygge, too.” – Visit Denmark
Hygge is all about fostering a warm and cozy environment where everyone can thrive. Focusing on the really good stuff and building a deeper connection is what hygge is all about.
What feels hygge can be different for each homeschool family, but here are a few things that definitely say hygge for my family:
- Reading together
- The warm glow of candles or campfire
- Cozying up to watch a movie together
- Soft fuzzy blankets and feather pillows
- Hot cocoa with lots of marshmallows

Homeschooling Through The Holidays Can Be Relaxing and Fun
Homeschooling through the holidays can be relaxing and fun, it doesn’t have to be difficult. Let go of the usual expectations this season brings and adopt a hygge mentality in your homeschool.
Resist the urge to participate in every single fun holiday activity in town. Put away the holiday bucket list and try not to compare your family to those you see on social media. Instead, settle in with those you love and embrace a slower, more thoughtful, and definitely more hygge holiday homeschool journey.
Homeschooling through the holidays can be an amazing time to learn and grow together as a family. We can embrace unscheduled days that revolve around cozy hygge moments together if we are intentional about it.
