Hyggefest Pop-up Café
February 4 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
The Museum will host a pop-up café during Andersonville Hyggefest. Stop by for a cup of coffee and a variety of Swedish treats including carrot cake in honor of carrot cake day that is celebrated in Sweden on Feb. 3. Please note that all visitors to the café need to show proof of vaccination and wear a mask when not eating.
Get cozy at Andersonville Hygge Fest this February! Businesses in Andersonville will offer warm drink specials, cozy offerings, workshops and more. Parts of Catalpa Avenue will be closed off to traffic and a heated ventilated tent will create a cozy space to explore. Hygge is a Danish word used when acknowledging a feeling or moment, whether alone or with friends, at home or out, ordinary or extraordinary as cozy, charming or special. It requires consciousness, a certain slowness, and the ability to not just be present – but recognize and enjoy the present. While there’s no one English word or simple definition to describe hygge, several can be used interchangeably to describe the idea of hygge as coziness, charm, happiness, feeling content, security, familiarity, comfort, reassurance, kinship, and simpleness. Danes created hygge to cope with the cold and dark months of the year. The simple act of a candle glowing with a cup of coffee in the morning or a home cooked evening meal with friends can make a huge difference to one’s spirit.
