1. Listen to the traditional Christmas song ‘Uingle, Bells!”,1 45, then sing it.
Jingle, bells! Jingle, bells!
Jingle all the way!
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.2
Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh,
O’er the fields we go,
Laughing all the way.
Bells, on bobtail3 ring,
Making spirits bright.4
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight.
1 “Jingle, Bells!” — «Звените, бубенчики!»
2 a one-horse open sleigh — открытые, запряженные одной лошадью сани
3 a bobtail — лошадка с коротким, подстриженным хвостом
4 making spirits bright — поднимая настроение
