24 Festive Tasks: Door 16 - St. Lucia's Day: Task 2

 

On the minus-twentieth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me ...
Two Christmas carols, one orchestral dance, one fairy tale, and two novels:

 

Two Christmas Carols:

* Jingle Bells

* Sleigh Ride

 

One Orchestral Dance:

* W.A. Mozart: Three German Dances Dance No. 3 ("Sleigh Ride")

 

One Fairy Tale:

* Hans-Christian Andersen: The Snow Queen

   (The snow queen's preferred mode of travel ... and abduction.)

 

Two Novels:

* Leo Tolstoy: War and Peace

   (Rostov and Sonya's Christmas Eve troika ride.)
* Terry Pratchett: Hogfather

   (DEATH and Albert doing their Santa stunt.  Umm, I mean Hogfather stunt.)

 

(Task: Compile a list of five or more carols, poems, short stories, novels or other pieces of writing that feature sleigh rides.)
