Such a great ttiairdon to have with your mom. I love the outdoor Christmas lights the most. I love how neighborhood's are transformed this time of year. It reminds me that light dispels the darkness.

I think that the bells have more of a positive connotation. The bells may symbolize danger, but she is not afraid, her father is able to carry her through the danger. Also, when bells ring it is a short period in time, much like the short period a daughter is able to bond with her father. We grow up and forget about the strong bond that we once had.
