A 365 to 40 Holiday, Day 2: It's Lovely Weather For a Sleigh Ride

I love an instrumental version of Sleigh Ride; admittedly, this is my favorite version. When I was in 9th grade band, our director challenged us with this piece, and for 14 year-olds, we did admirably. I can still remember Brian playing the horse neigh on his trumpet, flawlessly. She even borrowed a special percussion instrument to make the sound of the whip cracking, to make it the most authentic version we could play.

Definitely a little more cheery than yesterday, but today ended on a really good note. So, enjoy John Williams and the Boston Pops. I always do :)
