    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.

    Yes, this is an awesome idea and I'm in. I like the episode idea. I'm just trying to think of what to ring. Hmm....

    I'm in - i remember the old days on Delphi chat doing this. Perhaps its possible to sort out a temporary chat room to do this again like we did it before - perhaps even with audio so we can hear people ringing bells.

    Maybe. Somehow though, I feel even better doing this away from my computer. I'm thinking of doing it outside, just so I don't disturb my family, and somehow I feel it'll also be nicer standing out in the crisp night air surounded by the earth and sky ringing your bell... Man, I could use a Mokey smiley right about now, lol!
    :flirt: Groovy!

    The Muppets Studio's official Twitter account Retweeted (reposted) my Tweet about this, and I quote...

    "RT @muppetmindset Join us in bringing back bells to unite the Muppet fan community! http://bit.ly/6Zfuif @muppetsightings -12/21 Good idea!"

    They support it! How COOL is that? :excited:

    Can i suggest something .. www.tinychat.com - u need to have twitter or facebook to use it but people can hear others on it or see them all in little windows if they have webcams. Text chat too. Would be cool to see and hear everyone ringing their bells, or just text chat like the old days.
