Here are some Finnish Christmas songs I've been listening to. These skew more toward pop than traditional.
Johanna Kurkela - Varpunen Jouluaamuna (The Sparrow on Christmas Morning).
This was one of the first Christmas songs I heard after we moved here. And I ask again: why do we not have more sad Christmas songs in English?
Johanna Kurkela - Kotiin (Going Home)
I think this song is gorgeous and evocative and also shows off the beautiful Finnish language.
Johanna Kurkela - Lyhty (Lantern)
Similar themes as the above - Finns don't seem to have a word for Danish hygge, but they have the idea in some of these songs.
Saara Aalto & Tomi Metsäketo - Muistan Joulun (I Remember Christmas)
This one is so over-the-top and dramatic...and it gets played seemingly nonstop on Jouluradio here (Christmas radio). Super fun (and simple) to sing along to.
Every Finnish singer ever - Avaruus (Walking in the Air)
This is from that Snowman movie and there are soooo many versions of it here. This one also gets a lot of airtime on Jouluradio.
There are also beautiful Christmas songs that we sing at church, but that's another post!
