PostSubject: Thanksgiving Song   Thu Nov 27, 2014 2:22 am

An old Classmate of mine sent me a Thanksgiving greeting and we talked about how it was way back when. I related to her my experience as a kid when my father's Aunt Ruth came each Christmas with the sleigh to take us kids for a sleigh ride. It was a one-horse-open sleigh. There were bells on the harness and when the horse trotted, the bells jingled. She had heavy blankets we used to keep warm. It made me wonder when the song: "Jingle Bells" was written. I did a search and found that a Pastor in Boston wrote the song in 1857 for Thanksgiving. They must have had lots of snow at that time of year in the Northeast. I suppose the snow in the Northeast occurring now is not that unusual. As it turns out, Jingle Bells is a Thanksgiving song that got converted to a Christmas.

I'm thankful I'm not a turkey - do dah - do dah-
Second verse same as the first
only a little bit louder and a little bit worse -
do dah - do dah - day!


HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!

I'm thankful I got to spend another Thanksgiving on top of the dirt.

Appropriate Don and with a nice ring to it. One could sing that to the tune of "The Camptown Races..."
