There is nothing more elegant, more festive, than a Christmas tree trimmed in sterling silver and silverplate (silver plate) bells and ornaments to ring in the holiday season.

Bells announce the coming or arrival of an event, activity, or occasion.  They toll for good times.  They toll for bad times.  They ring out warnings.  Bells herald in the New Year. Bells are rung to announce the union of a man and a woman.  They are rung during Christmas to announce the arrival of the season, to proclaim the birth of Christ.

Ringing of bells can be traced back to pagan winter celebrations.  During those times, noisemakers were used to scare away evil spirits in the night. Among those early noisemakers were bells.  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 incorporated into 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, the ringing of bells began to be used in the Christian Christmas season. The soft, cheerful tones blended well and enhanced the sounds of the season. Today, they play an important, traditional role during the holiday.  One can find vintage glass bell tree ornaments, sleigh bells, caroling bells, and decorative bells of all varieties on the market. 

Bell collectors are intrigued by the appearance, sound and history of bells.  Bell collections vary depending on member interest: brass bells, bronze bells, ceramic bells, glass bells, crystal bells, porcelain bells, wood bells - all types of bells.

Bells have been around for centuries. The Egyptians believed that a mystical sound from God was communicated through the sound of a bell. Bells have a pure tone that is actually made of two notes. Some attest to the healing effect of bells such as with the ringing of the Tibetan bells.
