Language – Icelandic
Translation – The Christmas Cat
There are a few videos of this song on YouTube, but I chose this one as it has the lyrics in Icelandic (so you can all sing along), along with the English translation (in case your knowledge of Icelandic is not up to scratch). It’s a great story, with a message to be grateful for what you have, and also to look after those less fortunate than yourself. The true spirit of Christmas, in other words. I could listen to Björk singing all day, and especially in her native language.
