That Gezellig Life

Gezellig

pronounced as /heh sel ik/ is one of those words that is rather difficult to translate to another language. It is a word that represents the very heart of the Dutch culture.

Gezellig encompasses the coziness and warmth in the soul, like that of curling up with a good book and a warm verse munt thee on a cold winter day. It is that relaxing, unpretentious air of playfulness, so typical around family circles during weekend brunches. Gezellig is that sense of familiarity, that whiff of closeness and that unassuming sense of intimacy all in one package. It is neither a noun or a verb, but an adjective that describes a lifestyle principle every Dutch person aspires to lead.
