Silver Bells

We just learned about the Christmas song Little Drummer Boy.

Another famous Christmas song is Silver Bells.

This song was written in 1950 by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans.
At first it was going to be called tinkle bells, but the wife of one of the song writers thought it sounded funny since tinkle can be another way to say you are going to the bathroom!
So they changed it to Silver Bells.

One of the writers says the idea for the song came from a bell they had on their desk, but others think it came from the people during Christmas time that ring the bells to help collect money for poor people.
