No belltowers in my neighborhood that I'm aware of but we do have Dizneeland popping off fireworks every night at the stroke of 9:30PM.

Nostalgia? I think a comfortableness is being transmitted although the sound itself seldom qualifies.

Don't know why, I just like them.
I like bell towers, too. It's just that I am used to them having simple bells, like a clock.

The time I heard the new one at Oakland University it was making music. That confused me and was more action on top of my already busy mind. I looked at my watch hoping to find that it was an important hour of the day. 5 o'clock or 6 o'clock perhaps. It was not. It was a quarter after an hour. How important can that be to deserve so many bells?

/headscratch

Recently in Germany I also heard a lot of bells. My mom explained that meant someone was being buried.

Ahhh. That made sense.

But the same amount of bells for a quarter after the hour as for a village burial? Something was amiss in the magnitude of things.

Thanks, noonereal.
