Bells are one of the many beautiful sounds of Christmas, they’re used to celebrate and spread cheer; however they weren’t intended to be merry. Because the winters were filled with dark, sun-less days, many years ago, pagans believed it made evil spirits stronger and so to scare them away they tried to make lots of noise. The pagans chose bells because they could ring them and sing or shout at the same time.We use them today to share our joy, which is a whole lot different then what they were used for before.
