1…. Handbell Ringing is a team sport.
2.... Handbells can be and are rung year round - not just at Christmas.
3.... Yesterday my Middle School Handbell Choir had a concert for their peers. They did a great job!
4.... I do not like to carry handbell equipment.
5.... Handbell equipment is really really heavy! I don't remember it being this heavy when I was younger...
6.... Handbells are made of bronze.
7.... Handbell ringers wear gloves to protect their hands - not to protect the bells.
8.... Handbell ringers who don't wear gloves have to polish the handbells. I always have to polish the bells...
9.... Handbell ringers who want to ring all the bells themselves are called Bell Hogs. I am one of those people.
10.. There are two foundries in the US that make handbells. Both are in PA.
11.. Many different types of people ring handbells.
12.. I wish I had a set of handbells for my class so that we didn't have to share.
13.... How many angels get their wings when a handbell choir plays?
