Jóladraumur is the collaborative christmas tradition by Guðmundur Jónsson.
This year was no different as the songs ,,Jólin er dásamleg’’ and ,,Hef ég kjark til að byrja upp á nýtt’’ were just released this christmas.
The songs have a different atmosphere as the song ,,Jólin eru dásamleg’’ is a cheerful christmas song quoting the fact how wonderful christmas is. The song is sung beautifully by Þór Breiðfjörð and Jóhann Sigurðsson.
The message of the song is to challenge people to keep happiness in their hearts during this Christmas season and to not forget to have fun with your loved ones just as much as yourself.
The second song released by Jóladraumur this christmas is the song ,,Hef ég kjark til að byrja upp á nýtt’’ and as the saying goes often is sorrow and happiness related as the second song talks about the sorrow that can often come with this season. How it is to celebrate this time of year with certain expectations and at the same time grieving loved ones who are not with us anymore. Most of us go through a loss in our journey called life and can relate deeply to those feelings.
The song is sweet & dramatic sung by Íris Lind verudóttir radiating warmness from her heart.
