'Raska ftter springa tripp, tripp, tripp' or just 'Raska ftter', is a Christmas song, originally published in 'Julklappen' in 1901. The song, originally entitled 'Liten julvisa', describes a time when on several places in Sweden, the Christmas goat was still the Christmas giftbringer, and not Santa Claus. Sigrid Skldberg-Pettersson (18701941) wrote lyrics while Emmy Khler (18581925) wrote music.

The song lyrics describe Christmas celebrations in a family from the first Christmas presents are wrapped until the Christmas tree is taken out. The song remained in popularity throughout the 20th century, and is often sung when dancing around the Christmas tree. Despite Santa Claus replacing the Christmas Goat, the lyrics describe Swedish Christmas celebrations as most Swedes know it throughout the 20th century, with the family gathered around the Christmas tree, and Christmas presents.
