gezellig - adj.
There is no singular english translation for the dutch word, but depending on context, it can be translated as a convivial, cozy, fun, or nice atmosphere, but can also connote belonging, time spent with loved ones, the fact of seeing a friend after a long absence, or general togetherness that gives a warm feeling. The only common trait to all descriptions of gezellig is a rather general and abstract sensation of individual well-being that one typically shares with others. All descriptions involve a positive atmosphere, flow, or vibe that colors the individual personal experience in a favorable way and in one way or another corresponds to social contexts.
