Dashing through the snow
In a one horse open sleigh
O'er the fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bobtails ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh


Jingle Bells is one of the best known and loved Christmas songs in the world. But this Christmas song was originally written for... Thanksgiving!

Jingle Bells was the first song ever played in outer space. On December 16, 1965, the Gemini 6 crew played it on a harmonica and bells.
