 The Tradition

Bells are rung during Christmas to announce the arrival of the season, to proclaim the birth of Christ. It was also rung to scare away evil spirits at night. People had fun ringing the bells and making noise. It was too much fun to just use bells to scare demons away. So over time, bell ringing was associated with other events and activities. Bells are rung at churches to call people to gather, as warnings, and to bring people together to make announcements. From these ancient roots, today, the ringing of bells play an important, traditional role during the holiday and in the Christian Christmas season. The soft, cheerful tones blended well and enhanced the happy sounds of the season.
