Christmas Song: Jingle Bells, Jingle bells, Jingle all the way...
You hear this classic Christmas song countless number of times, and still it does not bore you! In fact, you teach your children and grandchildren this Christmas song which was first sung in 1857 in a church in Savannah, GA. James Lord Pierpont (1822-1893) wrote the song for Thanksgiving service but it was so well accepted that it was again sung on Christmas and became the most famous Christmas jingle of all time.
The popularity of the song can be discerned from the fact that it is said to be first song played on space. On December 16,1965, astronauts Wally Schirra and Tom Stafford in the spaceship Gemini 6, played a prank on mission Control saying that they have seen an UFO with a “pilot in red suit”. Then the astronauts played “Jingle Bells” on harmonica along with the sleigh bells as background music.
I found a karaoke of this song in Youtube .
