Play Jingle Bells on our online piano.
Jingle Bells is the most famous American Christmas Carol.
Written by church organist James Lord Pierpont, it was published as One Horse Open Sleigh.
Jingle Bells was originally created for Thanksgiving!
One mystery is where Pierpont composed the song. A memorial plaque in Medford, Massachusetts claims to be the birthplace of Jingle Bells, where Pierpont wrote the song in 1850 at the Simpson Tavern. The song was apparently inspired by the city’s popular sleigh races.
