Date Night In

The running theme for Align Woman lately has basically been “AUTUMN!” The world loves to make fun of white girls for our affinity for furry boots and pumpkin spice coffee, but in another part of the world, an obsession with coziness isn’t a point of mockery but of national unity.

Danes love hygge. Pronounced “hoo-guh,” the word is said to have no direct translation in English, though “cozy” comes close. It derives from a sixteenth-century Norwegian term, hugga, meaning “to comfort” or “to console,” and it’s related to the English word “hug.” Associated with relaxation, indulgence, and gratitude, hygge has long been considered a part of the Danish national character.

Americans are not Danes, but we have our own version of hygge, and it’s what fall is all about–we begin to slow down and prepare ourselves for the holidays. College football and homecoming reunions dominate our calendars. The spirit of togetherness comes with the cooling air, right on cue after the season which commemorates our independence. Autumn adds a certain depth to our social and political lives, and it’s a good time to start thinking about ways to maximize conviviality.

In this spirit, I want to recommend Date Night In Boxes. They are exactly what they sound like: the company delivers a complete date night experience in every box, including interactive games, accessories for ambiance, high-quality snacks, and mixers, and a chef-curated dinner menu and recipes. And, as always, the businesses for which I advocate are vetted to be free of the woke mind virus–so you can have a cozy night in without any feelings of guilt for supporting businesses that are really in the business of virtue signaling.
