Sleigh

Okay, this is something that is  old but really new to me.  I only see sleigh on movies but not for real.  This was one of the antiques over at the Brooke County Historical Museum in Wellsburg, WV.
 Kids were pretty amazed.
According to Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/?title=Sled):
sledsledge, or sleigh is a land vehicle with a smooth underside or possessing a separate body supported by two or more smooth, relatively narrow, longitudinal runners that travels by sliding across a surface. Most sleds are used on surfaces with low friction, such as snow or ice. In some cases, sleds may be used on mud, grass, or even smooth stones. They may be used to transport passengers, cargo, or both. Shades of meaning differentiating the three terms often reflect regional variations depending on historical uses and prevailing climate.

It would  be magical to be able to  ride a sleigh in this modern times, wouldn't it?
