Starting around mid-November, Sue dons her Christmas bell to sound a joyful note wherever she goes.
It's actually a bear bell that she purchased in the Rockies way back in 2000. The notion out there is to wear it to warn off bears when you're in the wild, but it's probably just a fun souvenir for tourists.
Sue has made excellent use of this souvenir and has brought it out every Christmastime ever since, leaving happiness in her wake. Which is pretty well what she does anyway.
I find it almost unBEARably cute.
