This is also my first time hearing about this traddition, and I think it is beautiful! I also think it came at the perfect time, both for the muppet fan community, and for me personally. As some of you may have noticed, my visits to the forum have been spiratic. WRinging a bell at the exact same time as several others throughout the world will bring back that same bond and sense of connectedness that made me love being a member of MC in the first place! Thank you everyone who is doing this for allowing me to connect with you in this way.
