Arguably the most popular and well-known Christmas song around, "Jingle Bells" was actually written for Thanksgiving! In 1857, James Lord Pierpont wrote the song to be sung at his church on Thanksgiving. It was so popular, they brought it back at Christmas time. The fact that the song is non-religious makes it a good choice for schools where you need to avoid religious reference in the classroom. Recommended for grades PreK-6.
