This is the perfect song to start with. Not only is it from Lapland (well, Finland anyway), it is also absolutely lovely (especially from 1:50 onwards), and – this is my favourite part – it is about Tonttu the Christmas Gnome. Why don’t we have a Christmas gnome in the UK? Perhaps I will start a campaign.
There’s an English translation of the lyrics here (scroll down).

Oh hurrah! I have been waiting to see what songs you’d pick!
Inevitably I want to sing that now… probably in English though…
what a good start – and it’s so pretty. Now I’m starting to feeling Christmassy
