"Just hear those sleigh bells jingling, ring-ting-tingling, too. …" Jingle bells are a hallmark of the holiday season. You can't hear them without thinking about Christmas. However, after awhile they're also super-annoying. Please avoid the urge to wear a jingle bell necklace. Bells are cute and festive -- but only for a few minutes. After that, they just become distracting. And how are you supposed to sneak around and get the juiciest office gossip if everyone can hear you coming? Let the Salvation Army Santa Claus ring those bells instead.
