Bells Rally People Of Word At Easter Time 1 Yes. Virginia, there is an Esster bunny . . . but some times. he's «ι bell. A:, curding to one European legend, church bells, which do i rot ring from Good Friday to Faster, fly to Rome. Oil their way back, they drop eggs for | children to lind. Bells have alwavs been close J ly associated with religious observances, reports World R»K>k Encyclopedia. Long be fore Christ, high uriests of the ι Israelites wore bells as a pro I lection against evil spirits, ι Since the 500's Christians have used bells to summon worship ! ers During the M'ddle Ages, bells were considered spiritual ι things. They received the bless i iug of a bishop and were wash 1ι d with holy water—a custom ι popularly known as the bap i tism of the bell. The bishop prayed that the bell would summon the faithtul to wor ί hip, drive away storms and 1 1 righten evil spirits. Bells had other uses, tern, such as announcing the curfew or calling attention to the not- ] ices of town criers. They warn- , w! of fires and called soldiers together . In fact, the power of bells to rally people was ;~o great that a conqueror frequently melted j down the bells of a town. 1 · I HD Federation Meeting Held Mrs. Betty Fitwr of WBTV. Charlotte.
