British English, early 19th century

Why this word?

Do you know the word “hygge” (pronounced “HOO-gah”)? It’s a Danish word meaning “cozy,” but it’s also a modern obsession with all things comforting. Having a snuggery is a key element of reaching the perfect state of hygge. A snuggery is probably exactly what you are envisioning in your head: a cozy little nook filled with comfortable chairs, pillows, blankets, and books (or whatever your personal dream den would be).
