Around Christmas every year we bake Swedish food and listen to Christmas, I think my mother actually has this record haha.

Thanks so much for posting this — Such a great album and cover. I just saw this in a charity-shop the other day in Sweden. This is my favorite Christmas album ever. When my parents were first married they lived in Goteborg and as a result loved all things Swedish. Growing up in NY I was the only kid who listened to this.
I was allowed to load it on the record player with much care. Now living in New Zealand I can enjoy it still thanks to your upload. Anna, I was record hunting yesterday and—lo and behold! I think I even let out a little shriek of delight, having recognized it from your post. There is a CD out but the cover is all in Swedish. In the first song I hear: Yully yully yen….
