Mika and Tobias are Danish You-Tubers who have won awards for their original songs and music videos. Check them out here: http://mikaogtobias.dk/.


This is their new Christmas music video which has a cosy ‘Last Christmas’ feel and includes mention of several Danish Christmas traditions, such as the family dancing around the Christmas tree, drinking gløgg (Danish mulled wine), eating aebleskiver (doughnut balls), giving out hand-made Christmas decorations created on klippe-klistre day at school, and hiding a peeled almond in the bowl of risengrød (hot rice pudding) for the lucky finder to get a present - usually the youngest child in the family.


Enjoy the video. Below are the lyrics in Danish with English translation. Glaedelig jul!




Mørket er faldet på Vi har skiftet til vintersko Vinteren er lige begyndt

Og vi holder ud i kulden

Stuen den er pyntet op Drikker gløgg af min julekop Jeg kan ikke lide det Jeg har bare aldrig ku' få mig selv til at sige det


Julehjerter det skal du ha' Jeg har lavet dem til klippe-klistre dag Pebernødder og honningkage Mor, er der flere æbleskiver tilbage?


Lad os synge en julesang Familien hånd i hånd Vi skal danse rundt om træet


For nu er det jul Vi sætter stjernen på træet Nu er det jul Vi skal ha' gaver og and Nu er det jul Med Lars, Chris, Mads og Allan Nu er det jul


Vi laver marcipankonfekt Men vi smider det alligevel væk Jeg ville ønske jeg var barn igen For der fik jeg altid mandlen


Familien kommer langvejs fra Vi hygger men vi mangler far Julemanden kommer altid frem Mens far sidder på toilettet


Julehjerter det skal du ha' Jeg har lavet dem til klippe-klistre dag Pebernødder og honningkage Mor, er der flere æbleskiver tilbage?


Lad os synge en julesang Familien hånd i hånd Vi skal danse rundt om træet


For nu er det jul Vi sætter stjernen på træet Nu er det jul Vi skal ha' gaver og and Nu er det jul Med Lars, Chris, Mads og Allan Glædelig jul!



Darkness has fallen We've got our winter shoes on Winter has just begun And we're out in the cold


The living room is decorated I'm drinking gløgg in my Christmas cup I don't like it I’ve just never been able to say it


Here are Christmas hearts for you I made them on klippe-klistre day Peanuts, gingerbread Mum, are there many æbleskiver left?


Let's sing a Christmas song All the family hand in hand We'll dance around the tree


Cause now it's Christmas We put the star on the tree Now it's Christmas We'll have presents and duck Now it's Christmas With Lars, Chris, Mads and Allen Now it's Christmas


We make marzipan sweets But we still throw them away I wish I was a child again Because I always got the almond


The family comes from far away We're having fun, but where is dad Santa always comes along While dad's sitting in the toilet


Here are Christmas hearts for you I made them on klippe-klistre day Peanuts, gingerbread Mum, are there many æbleskiver left?


Let's sing a Christmas song All the family hand in hand We'll dance around the tree


Cause now it's Christmas We put the star on the tree Now it's Christmas We'll have presents and duck Now it's Christmas With Lars, Chris, Mads and Allen Merry Christmas!
