Christmas Holiday Bells

Updated on September 13, 2014

Christmas Bells Ring Out!

Bells are often used to announce an important occasion. You will hear bells ring at funerals and at weddings and to announce the start of a church service. At Christmas, bells ring out to announce the joyous birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. The symbol of the bell has long been one of the delightful symbols of the Christmas season.

Bells are used in many ways at Christmas. We see church bells on greeting cards and jingle bells on sleighs. We have wonderful songs that remind us of Christmas bells. Two of the most popular songs are Jingle Bells and Silver Bells. Then of course there are all the wonderful bell decorations. We see bells on wreaths, on trees and strung up on lights around our homes. Bells are a great way to celebrate Christmas.

I love Christmas bell ornaments and have several on my tree each year. Here are a few I thought you might like.

I like this pretty round bell from lenox. It would make a classy gift too!

 

Candy Christmas Bells

Chocolate Christmas Bells

There are many kinds of chocolate bells. I like these simple ones wrapped in red and green foil. They will look cheery in a glass candy dish. They are also great to add to those Christmas stockings. I always like to put a little chocolate in each stocking.

Collector Christmas Bells

The dated china bells are really wonderful gifts.

Waterford Crystal Christmas Bell

Waterford is always beautiful.

Precious Moments Christmas Bells are Ringing

I have a Precious Moments collection and I thought this darling bell ringer would be a great addition.

Christmas Books-Bells

Jingle Bells Christmas Book

Jingle Bells is a very popular Christmas song for all ages. This children's book uses the popular song.

Christmas Novel

Each year in early December I find a Christmas novel to read. It is a great way to keep in the Christmas spirit. Christmas novels are normally light and easy reading, which is wonderful for this busy time of the year. After a day of baking or shopping it is nice to sit back, kick off my shoes, and settle in with a cheery Christmas book.

Christmas Music- Bells

Silver Bells Christmas Song - Christmas Music

Silver Bells is a very popular Christmas tune. Click on this video song and enjoy the sights and sounds of Christmas

Jingle Bells Rock

I love this rock and roll version!

There are many wonderful symbols for Christmas. I enjoy the nativity scene, Christmas bells, Christmas trees and wreaths, and all the brightly wrapped gifts. All of these things bring out the Christmas spirit for me. What symbols of Christmas do you enjoy over the holidays.

      What beautiful bells you have featured. Christmas just wouldn't the same without the delicate tinkling of bells.

      Christmas bells are my favorite symbol of the Christmas season. I have several special 'bells', from fancy to homemade in ceramic by a friend who is a potter. And, like Mandee, I love the song 'Silver Bells'.

      Silver Bells is one of my all time favorite Christmas songs. Especially when sung by Robert Goulet.

      Silver Bells was my mother's favorite Chistmas Song. She grew up in New York and would go to Macy's every Chistmas to see Santa. She remembers there was always someone out front ringing a little sliver bell.
