The Christmas Cat

Björk sings about the Christmas Cat!

I came to this delightful, seasonal song via I Heart Reykjavík‘s recent facebook post, where she explained

“The song about the Christmas Cat, Jólakötturinn, that was released in 1987 and sung by Björk is one of the few real Icelandic Christmas songs where both the lyrics and song is by Icelanders. The lyrics are by a famed Icelandic poet, Jóhannes úr Kötlum, who’s also responsible for the poems about the Yulelads that so many of you have heard of.”
