Nu är det jul igen (Christmas is Here)

Swedish Lyrics

 Nu är det jul igen, nu är det Jul igen
Och julen vara intill påska
Det var inte sant, men det var inte sant
För däremellan kommer fasta.

English Lyrics
Christmas is here,  oh Christmas is here,
And Christmas lasts until it’s Easter
No that is not true, oh no that is not true
For in between is Lenten fasting.

This is a simple dance that works very well to get everyone up and ready to do the rest of the dances. Stand holding hands and then start jogging about the room or even in and out of several rooms. At the end, circle around the Christmas tree and every one will be ready to start the other song games. The leader should be sure not to go too fast.
