Jingle Bells, originally titled One Horse Open Sleigh, is one of the most famous non-religious Christmas songs in the world. It was written in 1857 by the American James Pierpont (1822-1893) for theThanksgiving-feast in the Church of SavannahGeorgia. The song directly on beat, and was repeated at Christmas.


The first verse and chorus are the most well-remembered sections of "Jingle Bells":

Dashing through the snow
In a one horse open sleigh
O'er the fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bob tail * ring (or Hear our voices ring)
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to laugh and sing (or What fun it is to ride and sing)
A sleighing song tonight
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way;
Oh! what fun [joy] it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.
