Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Anders Petters stuga or Anders Perssons stuga står i ljusan låga is an old Swedish Christmas song of unknown origin. It is often sung when dancing around the Christmas tree. Lyrically, the song deals with a fire in "Anders Petters's" cottage. While the lyrics don't mention Christmas, the word ljusen ("lights, candles") is here strongly associated with the candles lit at Christmastime.

An early recording was done by Margareta Schönström in May 1925, and the record came out in 1926.
