Origin
A jingle bell or sleigh bell is a type of bell which produces a distinctive 'jingle' sound, especially in large numbers. They find use in many areas as a percussion instrument, including the classic sleigh bell sound and morris dancing. As well as use on horses, carriages, and sleighs. They are typically used as a cheaper alternative to small 'classic' bells.
