It is one of the best-known and commonly sung American wintertime songs in the world.
It was written by James Lord Pierpont (1822–1893) and published under the title “One Horse Open Sleigh” in the autumn of 1857.
Even though it is now associated with the Christmas and holiday season, it was actually originally written for American Thanksgiving.
It has been claimed that it was originally written to be sung by a Sunday school choir; however, historians dispute this, stating that it was much too “racy” to be sung by a children’s church choir in the days it was written.
