Many believe the song was actually written for Thanksgiving.
The pilot… is wearing a red suit. Or if you even remember the lesser-known second through fourth verses, you might be surprised to realize that there is no mention of Christmas, the holidays, gifts, or even the month of December anywhere in the song. In fact, some historians connect the tune with Thanksgiving rather than Christmas, but generally, there is no mention of when the song is taking place other than that it is wintertime. James Lord Pierpont was a man of many contradictions, and the story of his composition of this popular song is as well. Technically, he copyrighted the song while living in Savannah, Georgia, but because he grew up in Medford, Massachusetts, where sleigh rides and races would have been much more common during the winter months, both towns lay claim to the song. However, it does seem clear that it was actually a song about racing sleighs and dating girls rather than celebrating Christmas. The former was a popular hobby at the time the song was written, and both concepts might as well have been too spicy for a Sunday school choir.
It has been claimed that it was originally written to be sung by a Sunday school choir, or as a drinking song.

I know, there is a world, which I have traveled, that have a life so much more difficult than I. Instead, I found someone outside the cult and we've been married almost 32 years She's looking for a dedicated priesthood holder who will take her to the temple. You can watch them all in about a half an hour and you'll know almost everything you need to know. If you do attend parties like that, expect her to drink 7-Up and volunteer as the designated driver, and to be completely repulsed if you drink too much. If everything she is taught is correct and the Mormon church is "true" she should be able to research any anti-Mormon books or movies and prove their criticisms are lies. Do you know anyone working in medicine or in the healthcare field. She probably doesn't even realize how crazy that is. This can be a good way to learn more about your personalities. I have learned this painfully with my child growing up in the LDS community. I've found it extremely difficult particularly as he does not know how to communicate.
