It is hardly needed to present this melody for everyone
knows it, I guess. Jingle Bells, although sung mainly
by the Christmas time, is not a religious song. It was
written by James Lord Pierpont (1822?1893). I don't
know exactly the date it was created but it is recorded
that in the year 1857 J. L. Pierpont published it under
the title "One Horse Open Sleigh".
