(WWLP) – There's a dispute over where this popular Christmas carol was written. According to the website American Music Preservation, the song 'Jingle Bells' may have been written in a tavern in Medford, Massachusetts in 1850 by a man named James Pierpont. Pierpont is said to have composed the song at a place called Simpson's Tavern, a boarding house that is no longer standing.
