Re: Church bell

Rumshot, if you are new here there’s another tradition that you might not be aware of:

On New Year’s Eve the area churches - at least out my way - ring in the new year, ending at midnight. That’s 2021 peals!

As you can imagine, ringing that many peals takes time, IIRC it starts about 22:00 or so.

I love the sound...

Now, this doesn’t happen everywhere. You might want to check to see if your neighboring church rings in the new year, or not, and plan accordingly.

But fear not. Chances are that you won’t hear the New Year peals over the cacophony of exploding fireworks.
