When Massachusetts composer James Lord Pierpont wrote “Jingle Bells,” in 1857, he intended the song to celebrate Thanksgiving. The catchy tune about dashing through the snow is now undoubtedly associated with the Christmas season.

Leading up to the holiday — and beyond — you'll find numerous local opportunities to be pulled o’er the fields (and streets) in horse-drawn sleighs and wagons. With any luck, your family will be laughing all the way. 

• Ponies from the Green Mountain Miniature Horse Club pull passengers around the top block of Church Street in Burlington this Saturday and next. Click for info.

• At Billings Farm and Museum in Woodstock, horse-drawn sleigh rides are part of the Christmas at the Farm celebration throughout December, as well as Wassail Weekend on the Farm this weekend. Click here and here for info.
