With Ontario entering a strict lockdown on December 26th and nearly all non-essential businesses to close, now is the time more than ever to bring some joy to the holiday season. According to BlogTo, people in Toronto are planning on joining a world-wide bell-ringing Christmas Eve event to “make the 2020 holiday season a bit brighter”
The event, taking place all around the world, asks people to come out on their doorsteps or balconies and ring a bell at 6 pm on Christmas Eve. Etobicoke resident Craig Power shared the idea in the South Etobicoke Community Group Facebook page.
"On Christmas Eve at 6pm everyone will come outside onto their doorsteps and ring a bell for 2 minutes to spread the Christmas spirit and to help Santa fly his sleigh. After this awful year, it would be an amazing memory for the kids and communities. I saw it and I thought I want to get this in the neighbourhood, just like the pots and pans and bells for the frontline workers that we were doing for a while there.” he posted
Be sure to join in on Christmas eve and help spread some joy around the world during the difficult times we’re all going through!
