Event Details

Hearing holiday music can instantly fill our minds with the smell of pine, the taste of eggnog, and the warmth of a bright burning fire, but did you know that Jingle Bells was originally meant to be a Thanksgiving song?

Discover the story behind some of your holiday favorites while we learn why they truly are the most wonderful songs of the year.
