Ring Those Bells!

Things get interesting around our house when Ron brings the Christmas decorations up from the basement.

We always have the same argument every year about this particular item. Is it an ornament? Is it a pervertable? Do we hang it on the wall? Do we hang it on the bedpost? Is it purely decorative? Should it be treated as functional?

What do you think Ron did with the sleigh bells this year? They do have a purpose, and I'll bet you can't guess what it is. You'll have to
think outside the box for this one.

If you haven't commented here before, now's your chance. I'll post your guesses and the correct answer in a few days.

I wonder if you were made to dress up like a cat with a pretty bell collar?
Or maybe it should hang on the wall next to your bed?

Hi Hermione:
I was thinking along the same lines as Jflame, but not quite as creatively tho. I was thinking of it as a Christmas Collar, and then when you remove the collar it can be used as a Christmas Spanker, sort of a 2 for one deal. Can't wait to hear the answer, hope you have pictures!
Take Care

Hmmm, do you hang it in front of the fireplace so you can hear Santa if he comes early? So that he won't catch you being naughty? :)

Hermione, suggest that it's something like belling the cat.
Success is rewarded by the belt being used on you.
Warm hugs,

I know this is terribly vanilla and boring but.. we have a similar set of bells and we put it on one of the exterior doors to merrily greet visitors during the holidays. Ours is rather stiff and unbending due to being stored in the hot attic for years. It would not make a very good pervertible but we are open to suggestions :)

Hang it on the bird feeder to scare the squirrels away... like a scarecrow for squirrels?

Doc said...

Yes, for vanilla purposes I'd say it was for doorknobs. We have larger bells at my parent's.

I think it's to hang on the doorknob, but my evil mind has another use in mind!

Pin the tail on the spanko?

Jay Walker said...

Maybe you should pin it on Ron so you can hear him if he trys to sneak up to give you an advent spank.
Hey that's good! Who wants a ordinary advent calender when you could make a Spanking advent calender. Behind each door is 1. Number of spanks. 2. Implement. 3. Position.
Lets see how many people use my idea.
Hermione plleeeaseeee whats the answer? I'm begging now!!!!!

Hermione, this would be more noise being used than it would actually sting. LOL! I would say place it half on the wall then half on the bedpost! That way it will have more than one use for it. I really don't think you would like my answer on this blog what I think Ron did with the bells! Hehehehe! If you would like to know you can email me at

He didn't actually put them on a sleigh did he?
