The Worldwide Christmas Eve Jingle is a simple idea that started with one woman, Mary Beggs-Reid in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, a small town in England and has since spread across the Earth.

On Christmas Eve, at 6 p.m. local time, families around the world will stand on their front steps and simply ring a bell for 2 minutes. Organizers are hoping that the sounds on that still winter night will travel all the way to the North Pole to help guide Santa on his way. But more than that, the sound will lift the hearts of those near and far who are doing their best to keep the Christmas spirit alive in these very challenging times.

The Athol Recreation Committee invites all members of our community to join in this event.

So find a bell and we look forward to hearing you on Christmas Eve at 6 pm.

Thank you to local resident Lesley Hadrill for getting the ball rolling on this initiative or should we say bell ringing?

Wishing all a safe and happy holiday season!

From the folks of the Athol Recreation Committee
