While doing research on sleigh bells I discovered the song "Jingle Bells" was originally written as a Thanksgiving Day song by James Pierpoint in 1857. It's popularity caused it to be repeated as a Christmas song and has been recognized that way since.

The sound of sleigh bells reminds us of the "good old days" when going to grandmother's house for Christmas dinner was a family tradition. Most of us today either no longer have grandmother or we live so far away it is difficult to travel so far. Now Christmas has a different feeling for many, so sleigh bells can be a reminder of the days when families were a more closely knit unit.
