What is Gemutlichkeit?
Gemutlichkeit is a german noun which connotes a public festivity involving a sense of belonging or communal solidarity, among the "foks." Drinking, food, and dancing are 'gemutlich' activities. At seminary, Gemutlichkeit is simply an excuse to drink beer with fellow students and faculty members.
