Sunday Song - Sleigh Ride (instrumental)

Sleigh Ride has been one of my favorite songs since I was very little, maybe 2 or 3. This would have been around 1955 or 1956, so think "Back to the Future!" I remember watching TV, waiting on Santa to appear, and hearing this song play. No matter where I was in the house, when this music started, I'd be right in front of that set that brought Santa into our home!

 My, what a wonderful song, to know that Santa wasn't far away now! I'd gaze at the old (new then) black and white television, dreaming of all the magnificent toys and SURPRISES the jolly old elf would bring me (sighing happily).

Santa wasn't on for very long, maybe 15 minutes, but that was a long time when you're a toddler. My eyes were filled with stars, imagining what I'd tell him I wanted if I actually got to sit on his lap in that beautiful sleigh! I would wonder if there were a dolly in the toy bag behind him, maybe a jack-in-the-box or even a puppy. And, there were always SURPRISES!!!

The music would start again and I'd have to wait until the next time to see Old Saint Nick (sighing reluctantly as Santa drove out of sight!).

Hope you enjoy this music as much as I do!
