Festival of the Bells, Fraggle Rock
Since the world is all about The Muppets these days, let’s spice things up with a holiday from Jim Henson’s good ol’ Fraggle Rock, shall we? According to Fraggle legend, the Fraggles’ beloved Rock slows down with the Winter Solstice. The Great Bell at the heart of the Rock must be rung so that the Rock can continue moving for another year. By exchanging gifts and ringing tiny bells at their annual festival, Fraggles can wake the Great Bell, thus saving the Rock. And don’t forget the dance of the Weebabeast! So, on December 22nd (or June 21st, depending on your hemisphere), think of the Fraggles.
