My sleep schedule's been kinda strange lately, but if I'm awake, then I'll be ringing my bell! It's a cute little bell Christmas ornament that I've designated my solstice bell.

Is anyone interested in ringing the bells this year on the 21st? Winter Solstice will be at 9:58AM Central Time.

How do I join?

It's very easy...
1 Wait until the date of the winter solstice, December 21.
2 If you have it handy, at 9:00/9:30 PM CST (not sure if its a regular half-hour or hour-long special), start watching the Fraggle Rock episode titled The Bells of Fraggle Rock.
3 Grab something that makes a bell-like ringing or jingling noise like toy bells or keys or windchimes etc., and when the Fraggles set the Great Bell ringing at 10:00 PM CST you ring/jangle your own joining in on the celebration.
If you don't have the episode of Fraggle Rock, just proceed to Step 3.

Hope this helps.

BTW: This tradition of MCF makes me think of the song "The Closing of the Year" from Toys, an underrated Robin Williams film.
