Happy Holiday in Sweden

This record contains a bunch of wellknown Swedish artists from the beginning of the sixties. I particularly like the way they are imitating the sound of tripping small "tomtenissar", as we call them in Sweden. The song is called "Tre små tomtar"(meening there are three of these small men).
We have a slightly different Christmastradition, originally Father Christmas was not an old man with beard at all, he was rather a small, grey grumpy and rather mean supernatural being known from fairytales. For various reasons somebody found out it would be nicer with a red cap. And then he turned out to be part of the Christmas celebrations, which was never ment to be.
The record contains some national and some international favourites, my favourite amongs the american songs is a hilarious version of "Frosty the Snowman".
