This Lady Has Enough Christmas Spirit For All Of Us Combined

Blog
Every time the Christmas season rolls around and I hear bells, I get a little nostalgic. I belonged to a handbell choir when I was in high school, and I always looked forward to playing Christmas songs during our holiday concerts. It's been many years since I've made music with bells, but now I'm wishing I had this lady's awesome outfit so I could jam out whenever the mood strikes.Julie Sewell must love the winter holiday, because she spent hours putting together a bodysuit with 12 bells on it.
