Savannah’s Jingle Bell Square

December 23rd, 2013 by Teresa Jacobson

It’s getting closer to Christmas and we just can’t wait to share the inn with everyone! And of course, what is the Christmas spirit without any music?  Did you know that Savannah has her Jingle Bell Square? That’s right! Jingle Bells was written right here in Savannah’s Troup Square!

 The Musician

James L. Pierpont was a talented Music Director of the Unitarian Church overlooking Troup Square and also served as a Confederate cavalry regiment. Of the many lyrics and compositions he wrote, Jingle Bells was the one that really took Savannah’s people and the world by storm for its catchy tune!

The Music of Savannah’s Jingle Bell Square

He wrote the composition and lyrics to Jingle Bells in 1853 under the title ‘One Horse Open Sleigh’. His initial inspiration for the song was drawn from the bells attached to the harnesses of horses whose purpose was to alert other carriages of your presence when you were coming to a blind intersection.

The bells were especially important when it snowed seeing as how you can’t hear the sleighs! Imagine if they didn’t think of having them? YIKES.

 Jingle Bells Today!

When it was reprinted in 1859 it was given the name ‘Jingle Bells.’ Since it’s become public domain the song has become a Christmas classic having been covered by scores of musicians all over the world! So come down to Troup Square on the corner of Habersham and Harris street in the Historic District! And from all of us at the Azalea Inn & Gardens: Have a Merry Christmas, a Happy Holiday, and a wonderful New Year!

 

Azalea Inn and Gardens, a Savannah GA bed and breakfast inn, invites you to reserve a room today to begin enjoying the best experiences in our city, which Travel + Leisure Magazine acclaimed as a “World’s Best City.”
