Look, I don’t make the rules… I just learned this fact TODAY.
Did you know that the song Jingle Bells wasn’t originally associated with the Christmas holiday?
According to History.com:
Although “Jingle Bells” is now a Yuletide staple, there is no mention of Christmas or any other holiday in the song. Some historical accounts report that the tune was first performed for a Thanksgiving service at the church of either Pierpont’s father or brother, but the lyrics might have been too risqué for an ecclesiastical audience.
So… Jingle Bells is a THANKSGIVING SONG?! My whole life is a lie.
