In this blog post we look at when to use cosy and when to use cozy.
"Cozy" and "cosy" are two different spellings of the same word, which means comfortable and warm, especially in a way that feels relaxing or intimate.
Both spellings are acceptable, and they are used interchangeably in different parts of the world.
In British English, the spelling "cosy" is more common, while in American English, the spelling "cozy" is more common.
However, both spellings are used in both British and American English, and it is not uncommon to see either spelling in either variety of English.
