Scandinavian Christmas Decor

Maybe it’s the “hygge” or the “fika”, but there is definitely something to be said about a Scandinavian Christmas. With the holiday being centered around coziness, happiness, family traditions and faith, the decor really just needs to remain simple and fresh. From geometric shapes, natural greenery, rustic elements and enough candles to make your home glow for miles, you can easily have yourself a merry “hygge” Christmas.

What’s hygge? (pronounced: hyoo-gah). Don’t worry, I was one of the last ones to find out about this trend too. Hygge is a Danish word that describes the quality of coziness that allows you to feel content. Sipping hot coffee with my fiancé by a crackling fire with my snoring beagle snuggled at my side. That’s my kind of hygge.

Similar to hygge, the Swedish have their fika (pronounced fee-kah) which literally means “to have coffee”. The deeper meaning behind “fika” is that people should set aside time every day to find contentment and coziness for their own well-being. This could mean having coffee and pastries with your friends while enjoying a good laugh. 

It’s no coincidence that Scandinavian countries are among the top 10 happiest nations in the world. They just get it.

For me, I love how they center their holiday around being happy and cozy with loved ones. I am so over the greed and manufactured joy that some mistake for Christmas. It’s time we all detox our weary holiday spirits and let in the “hygge” vibes of a Scandinavian Christmas. Glögg included. (spiced mulled wine… and it’s amazing!)

Luckily, we don’t have to travel abroad to get our hands on some great Scandinavian pieces! Amazon really knows the way to our hearts!
