Remember, your response needs to be in question form:

ingle Bells

       
       

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

"Jingle Bells", originally "One Horse Open Sleigh", is one of the best known and commonly sung secular Christmas songs in the world. It was written in 1857 by James Pierpont (1822–1893) to be sung at a Thanksgiving program at his church in Boston, and was repeated at Christmas due to its instant popularity.

As originally published, the song had a different melody as its chorus part, which was less joyful and more classical, Mozart-like sounding. It is unknown who replaced the chorus with its modern version.

Now I can see how it would be considered a Thanksgiving song.

I never thought of it that way.

300: "We need a little Christmas" is, indeed, from "Mame."

 

        But "Mame" was not written by Meredith Wilson, who did write "The

Music Man," "The Unsinkable Molly Brown," amd "Here's Love" (musical version

of "Miracle on 34th Street").  "Mame" was written by Jerry Herman ("Hello, Dolly," "The Grand Tour," "La Cage aux Folles").

A thank you to Mr. Davis for correctly noting that "Mame" was indeed a Jerry Herman musical. The judges have been placed on notice and have been ordered to do community service at the TKTS booth until further notice.

 

And kudos to WoodsideGirl and JK for getting the correct responses despite the egregious error.
