“Jingle Bells” is a popular Christmas song that was written in 1857 by James Lord Pierpont. It was originally composed for a Thanksgiving evening at the Unitarian Church in Savannah, Georgia, where Pierpont was an organist. The song was written under the title One Horse Open Sleigh (An Open Horse Sleigh) and became popular after its first publication in 1857. 91 years after the original version, Francis Blanche adapted “Jingle Bells” in French under the name of “Vive le vent”, with lyrics having no relation to the original version.

Easy to learn Christmas song: The anecdote about “Jingle Bells” and “Vive le vent”

If today, “Jingle Bells” is sung in front of a fireplace or with family around a piano, this is far from being the case with the original song. In the United States of the 19th century, it was mainly a tune sung during festive evenings among adults, while jingling the ice cubes in their glasses full of alcohol.
The English lyrics also make subtle references to sleigh rides accompanied by pretty girls: “Now the ground is white, Go it while you're young, Take the girls tonight, and sing this sleighing song. ".

The translation “Now the ground is white, Go there while you are young, Take the girls out tonight, and sing that sleigh song.” A nuance lost in the French translation of “Vive le vent” by Francis Blanche in 1948, which evokes the joyful and innocent spirit of Christmas rather than sleigh crashes and snow adventures with pretty young girls.
