Did you know…

There is one very popular Christmas song that actually isn’t a Christmas song.

It was written in the 1850s and first performed by a Sunday school class at Thanksgiving. The song was so popular that the church performed it again at Christmas, and the rest is history.

If you listen clearly, the lyrics are all about the writer’s longing for a white Christmas like he experienced in Massachusetts and wasn’t experiencing in his new home of Georgia.

That song is Jingle Bells.

Here is my favorite version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p07T4dlw2cc

Why am I thinking Christmas Carols when we haven’t reached Veteran’s Day? Because we have a station that has started playing Carols on November 1st. And yes, I’m listening.

Until next time.
