merry christmas everyone! 🎄 here’s a lil xmas fact for ya 😉

#tdil jingle bells was actually written for thanksgiving! 😱

what a shocker, aye?! 😱 one of the most famous xmas songs wasn’t even written for christmas 🙈

the song, which was written by james lord pierpont in 1857, was originally called ‘one horse open sleigh’ and was written for thanksgiving 😳

apparently, the original reason for the song was to give sunday school attendees a little sing song about the famous medford sleigh races that happened every thanksgiving 😏

so yeah, it was never supposed to be a christmas song! as of yet, i’m not sure how it transferred … but i’m about to eat some christmas dinner goodness 😂🙈

hope you’re having a good one peeps! 😘

laters! 😜 #tdil
