"'Tre pepparkaksgubbar'", also known as "Vi komma, vi komma frn Pepparkakeland", is a Swedish Christmas song with lyrics by Astrid Forsell-Gullstrand and music by Alice Tegnr. The song was originally published in 1913, both in Brina Hallonhtta och andra visor and volume 6 of Alice Tegnr's Sjung med oss, Mamma!.

The song describes three gingerbread men with eyes out of zante currants, who tell about themselves come walking from 'Pepparkakeland' at Christmastime. During Saint Lucy's processions, the song is sung by boys dressed as gingerbread men.
