These sparkly new lyrics were written by member Kate Carpenter to the classic tune and they couldn’t fit better for all of us who grew up on a Christmas in sandals!
From Mrs. Kate:
I live and perform for children in Florida. Many Florida kids grow up in the Sunshine State and have never seen the snow. I wanted to write a version of Jingle Bells that would tell their story. I mean, who’s ever had the fun of riding in a one-horse open sleigh?
This song is recorded on my Florida Family Folk Songs CD, a collection of 12 original songs and one story.
