'Julpolska', also known as ' Nu ha vi ljus hr i vrt hus', is a Christmas song with lyrics by Rafael Hertzberg (1845-1896) and music by Johanna lander (1827-1909). Song lyrics describe Christmas Eve, dated from a time when the Christmas goat at many places still was the giftbringer, not Santa Claus.

The song was also used in the 1987 film "Mer om oss barn i Bullerbyn".[http://www.sfi.se/sv/svensk-filmdatabas/Item/?itemid=16844&type=MOVIE&iv=Music Information] at Swedish Film Database
