Silver Bells

Many years ago, I gave my mother silver bells representing the twelve days of Christmas. They were sold by Halls Department Store in Kansas City. It took six years to get the set, as Halls came out with two new bells each year.

After my parents died, I reclaimed the silver bells, as I reclaimed the old clock that has been in our family since 1875.

During Christmas season, the bells sit beside the clock and remind me of my parents.

What old Christmas decorations do you have?

  1. Great story! There are a number of “lesser things” that I have not yet recovered from my move. Someday, I’ll find my can opener, meanwhile I have a new one that is like none you’ve ever seen before. It’s more like a battery-operated rocket ship. Crazy. But it works!
