Jingle Bells was the single most popular song at a Christmas tearoom event for kids, which we played for last weekend. As it was a moving population of people coming and going, it must have been done at least 6 times - twice through each time - in the course of 3 hours. The kids played along with my set if bells and other percussion we'd brought. Payment was a cup of tea, a glass of non-alcoholic mulled wine, and a hot mince pie.
