The Story Behing Jingle Bells Christmas Carol
Jingle Bells is a popular Christmas song that has been sung for decades. The tune is in the public domain and is played by most orchestras during the holiday season. The song was written by James Lord Pierpont in 1857. It was originally titled The One Horse Open Sleigh.
This song was written in honor of a sleigh race held by the New York Yacht Club in 1857. The lyrics of Jingle Bells are as follows: "Dashing through the snow, in a one-horse open sleigh, "Over the fields we go, laughing all the way, "Bells on bob-tail ring, making spirits bright, "What fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight." The original title of the song was changed to "The One Horse Open Sleigh" because it was impossible to copyright a name.
The music to Jingle Bells has a famous melody, but the lyrics are considered rather silly and not very deep. The original version of Jingle Bells has only two verses, and then an extra couplet was added later on. In the second version, the verses were changed to make them more appropriate for Christmas. The changes were made by returning the last line to "laughing all the way". The third version is the most popular. It is sung with four verses.
The original lyrics to Jingle Bells were written by James Lord Pierpont, who was a poet, and the music was composed by John Joseph Austin, who was a professor of music at Columbia College.
