    ANDERSONVILLE — If you’re stuck inside because of the pandemic and the bitter cold temperatures, you might as well do it in comfort and style.

    Hygge Fest can help. The Andersonville festival has been extended from one weekend to the entire month of February for its third year. It will include pandemic-friendly events that celebrate living through a brisk winter.

    “Hygge” (pronounced hue-gah) is a northern European wintertime ritual of celebrating life’s simple pleasures, like being warm and near family during colder months.

    Gathering with friends and family isn’t so feasible this year, so Hygge Fest has been reimagined to help residents stay entertained and comfortable while in quarantine. Previous events, like a pajama “fun run,” will not be held this year.

    New to this year’s fest is the Great Andersonville Puzzle Exchange. The puzzle swap will take place 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Feb. 27 at the parking lot behind Women & Children First, 5253 N. Clark St. Read more HERE
