🔔🔔Christmas time is special, full of magic and wonder for children, here are some of the Children of past times from my collection who probably had a very different Christmas than Children of today🔔🔔
🔔🔔I couldn’t post this Christmas Blog without a bit of History creeping in!🔔🔔
🔔🔔“The song “Jingle Bells” is one of the best-known & commonly sung American songs in the world. It was written by James Lord Pierpont (1822–1893) & first published under the title “One Horse Open Sleigh” in the autumn of 1857.
Although originally intended for the Thanksgiving season & having no connection to Christmas, it became associated with Christmas music & the holiday season in general decades after it was first performed on Washington Street in Boston in 1857.
Some area choirs adopted it as part of their repertoire in the 1860s & 1870s, and it was featured in a variety of parlour song & college collections in the 1880s.
It was first recorded in 1889 on an Edison cylinder”🔔🔔
