Hi! I sincerely hope I did this correctly and did not violate the norms.
I'm a journalist looking to do a story on the term "sleigh riding", which
is how snow sledding is referred to in New York, despite there not being a
sleigh involved. Wondering if anyone might help trace where/when/how the
term came to be.
Thank you and happy new year.
