I haven't been on CFs all that long and before coming here I had never come across the term "jingles" as in sending good wishes or condolences. Being a word nerd, I just have to know where that term came from. The one guess I have is from the movie "It's a Wonderful Life" but it's been awhile since I watched it and I'm not sure if it really fits... TIA for indulging my curiosity!
It's just grass and water till it hits the ground.
Way back when there was a sick little boy, I don't know how to spell his name but I'm pretty sure it was Aiden. Everyone said they would jingle their curb chains in support, thus Jingles. I think you can find the thread in the Reference or Favorite forums.
As I recall it started out on the Ultimate Dressage board. People would ask for prayers. People who didn't believe in prayer got a little miffed that it left them out so jingling curb chains because the universal form of *prayers*.
I like it and it can mean anything you want. For me it means *jingle jingle jingle, it's me again God*.
