4 Swedish Lucia songs

Lucia in Sweden is beautiful pre-Christmas tradition of story-telling and mythology. It’s also a great excuse to sing, play music and gather with friends and family. Here are 5 essential songs to learn for celebrating Lucia with kids.

To get everyone in the spirit, I promised I would put together at least 4 classic Lucia songs for everyone to be familiar with Luciatåg. I’ve also come across the most brilliant Youtube channel – Barnsånger på Svenska. It’s a bit like karaoke! You can sing along with the cartoons and read the words at the same time.


The 4 songs we’ll be singing on Friday are (check out the YouTube videos for melody and lyrics):

Sankta Lucia Lyrics for Sankta Lucia

Tre Pepparkaksgubbar – Lyrics for Tre Pepparkaksgubbar

Nu tändas tusen juleljus – Lyrics for Nu tändas tusen juleljus

Hej, tomtegubbar – Lyrics for Hej, tomtegubbar
