Christmas Bells

A popular tradition at Christmas time includes church bells. Both the Angelicin and Catholic churches often have bells and bell ringers during services. Christmas Day services are no exception in that it is tradition that bells are rang during the service. In fact Midnight Mass in the Catholic Church will feature altar bells rang during the song "Gloria"





Christmas midnight mass dates back to the early church. Many historians believe that Jesus was born at midnight and while there is no proof many churches have service at midnight on Christmas Eve for this very reason. 





Handbells are often played to the tunes of Christmas carols. One of the most popular Christmas songs that features bells is the song 'Jingle Bells' Did you know that this song was also recorded from space on December 1965 by Tom Stafford and Wally Schirra.
