What does "hygge" mean?

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. And there's nothing more hygge than sitting around with friends and family, discussing the big and small things in life.
