Similar to other Scandinavian cultures, a fundamental aspect of Danish culture is "hygge". Hygge is a concept that evokes "coziness", particularly when relaxing with good friends or loved ones and while enjoying good food.
Christmas time, when loved ones sit close together on a cold rainy night, is a true moment of hygge, as is grilling a pølse (Danish sausage) and drinking a beer on a long summer evening. It is suspected the concept of Hygge is part of the reason Danes and other Scandinavians score high on happiness.
