I wanted to sketch one of the not so boring ones like Silent Night (Sorry!) and so I ended up sketching Jingle Bells. That was actually quite an interesting thing to do because I really learned a lot about it. Like: It was not intendend to be a christmas song in first place but more of a sleigh race song. And if you listen to the lyrics you see, there is not much mention of christmas or holidays in it. It is more about sleigh crashs and picking up girls. Funny thing though: People barely ever sing the other three verses.
