How to Hygee: The Nordic Secret to Happiness

All Day
Palos Park Library
Community Room

Event Details

Get HYGGE with us! Pronounced "hue-gah," this Danish expression is an attitude towards life that emphasizes finding joy in everyday moments. Rather than drudge through the winter, hygge is about celebrating coziness, warmth and family, as well as practicing mindfulness. See below for the day's itinerary. Join us for one event or more.

Events are free and for adults, unless noted "also open to tweens and teens". Craft supplies provided.
