Swedish Christmas songs

Here are some traditional swedish christmas songs. We often sing these around 13 of december when we celebrate Sancta Lucia!







The baker
In our town there is a baker, he bakes cookies all day long, some are big and some are small and some has sugar on top.
And through his window you can see gingerbread men and candy canes hanging. And if you are kind you can have one too but if you are naughty you have to go.

The christmas mice
When the nights get longer and colder, mother mouse takes her children and says to them. Watch out for the mousetrap and then we can all celebrate christmas together!
Falleralla fallerallera when christmas comes let everyone be happy!
Falleralla fallerallera when christmas comes let everyone be happy!

Sancta Lucia
Sancta Lucia the girl in white dress, comes to us all, let us be still. Shine like candles at home and in every house. Santca Lucia, Sancta Lucia.
Outside is cold and dark, the lit candles shine in every house. I can se someone coming I think I know who it is Sancta Lucia, Sancta Lucia.

Icelandic Christmas song

Bráðum koma blessuð jólin
Bráðum koma blessuð jólin,
Soon be blessed Christmas,
börnin fara að hlakka til.
children going to wait.
Allir fá þá eitthvað fallegt
All get them something nice
í það minnsta kerti og spil.
at least candles and cards.

Hvað það verður veit nú enginn
What it will be no one knows
vandi er um slíkt að spá.
problem is of such to predict.
Eitt er víst að alltaf verður
One thing is certain that there must
ákaflega gaman þá.
be very nice then.

Máske þú fáir menn út tini
Maybe you get a tin soldier
máske líka þetta kver.
Maybe also this Collation.
Við skulum bíða og sjá hvað setur
Let's wait and see what sets
seinna vitnast hvernig fer.
later testified how goes.

En ef þú skyldir eignast kverið,
But if you happen to have the collation,
ætlar það að biðja þig,
It will ask you,
að fletta hægt og fara alltaf
turn the pages slowly and always take
fjarskalega vel með sig.
Good care of it.

Hér má lesa um hitt og þetta ,
Here you can read about this and that,
heima og í skólanum,
home and school,
sem þau heyrðu afi og gamma,
that they heard grandfather and gamma,
ekki síst á jólunum.
especially at Christmas.

lyrics to Icelandic christmas song




1.Jólasveinar ganga um gólf
Jólasveinar ganga um gólf
Santa walking the floormeð gildan staf í hendi,
a valid cain in his hand,móðir þeirra sópar gólf
Their mother sweep the floorog flengir þá með vendi.
hits their butts with a wand.:,: Upp á stól stendur mín kanna,
:: Up on the chair is my mug,níu nóttum fyrir jól
nine nights before Christmasþá kem ég til manna :,:
then I come to men,:
