At Last, Jingle Bells in Latin

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
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight!

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

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

Published in 1857, the song was written by James Lord Pierpont.  Originally the song was considered somewhat racy and often was sung at drinking parties where the clinking of ice in glasses supplied the jingling.  Eventually it became a children’s song and became associated with Christmas.  It is perhaps the most widely known and sung of all American songs.
