Well, actually you DO have Thanksgiving music I bet!
“Jingle Bells” was published in 1857 specifically as a song for THANKSGIVING not Christmas!
Originally titles “One Horse Open Sleigh”. A sleigh on snow makes no noise. To help prevent accidents at blind intersections and when riding at night (with no headlights of course) course harnesses were fitted with sleigh bells to sleigh drivers would be aware of each other hearing the bells of approaching traffic!
So, there’s your trivia for the day.

Thank YOU Tim
Neat story about “Jingle Bells”.
To keep the song alive following Thanksgiving we could use the sub-title “Let’s Go Shopping in the Snow At Night”.
