St. Knut's Day is a holiday celebrated in Sweden on January 13th. The day is called Tjugondag Knut (20th day Knut). On St. Knut's Day, they "plunder" the Christmas tree (Julgransplundring). If there are edible ornaments on the tree, they eat them. They also take off all the non-edible ornaments and throw away the tree.

People also take a hammer and break up the gingerbread house while singing this song...

Notes

This song comes from the last verse of the Christmas song called Raska fötter springa tripp, tripp, tripp (Hasty Feet Run Quick, Quick, Quick!).
