Swedish Christmas songs

Sundliska Gården

When you can’t go to Sweden but you long for some Swedish Christmas spirit, you could listen to my playlist with Swedish Christmas songs. Below I list a few of my favorite Swedish Christmas songs and some real classics.

My favourite Swedish Christmas songs

  • Tänd ett ljusNiklas Strömstedt
    Goosebumps when I hear this song. It reminds me every time of the first time I went to Levande Julkalendern in Stockholm. It was in an inner garden. There were lights and a choir and to top it all off, they handed out glögg and pepparkakor. A very nice memory. You could really feel the Christmas spirit.
  • Jag drömmer and jul hemma and Tomten jag vill ha and riktig jul – in the version of Måns Zelmerlöw. And now that we are talking about this winner of the Eurovision Song Contest, December should not be missing from this list. I like it even more than the first 2! Not exactly a Christmas song, but this song also fits very nicely in terms of atmosphere and message: Ett lyckligt slut.
  • And ton av tystnadSanna Nielsen
    Very nice! It would make you silent… 😉
  • Jul, Jul, Strålande JulCarola
    Admittedly, with this song I have a love-hate relationship and I dare to skip it if I’m not in the right mood
  • Jag såg mamma kyssa tomten
    A cover of I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus.
  • Den JulenScotts
    I only discovered this song this year. Instant favorite. No Christmas without “Last Christmas” and so there is also a Swedish version of it.

True classics

  • Mer Jul
  • Juligen
  • Nu tändas tusen juleljus
  • Julen är här
