Are You Still Hearing Church Bells Every Morning?

Your answer would be YES, if... 1. You are living in the Philippines 2. You are living near the Catholic church And your answer would NO, if... ...You are not living near the church. And your answer would be MAYBE, if... ...You can only hear them during Christmas season. In my place, San Esteban, the church never fail to ring the church bell at exactly 5 o clock in the morning. No morning would be pass without ringing from Monday to Sunday. No it didn't wake me up because I used to the sound now. But some people here serve the church bell ring as alarm clock. From a distance its a nice sound to hear, as our favorite song says... Silver bells, silver bells Its Christmas time in the city Ring-a-ling, hear them ring Soon it will be CHRISTMAS DAY.

@ilocosboy I know, because your place is a very old settlement, I think I told you before that some of my ancestors from my father's side were from your province, Narvacan in particular. Our subdivision in Las Pinas is very new, it was settled only in the late 60s from a converted rice field.
Not come from the Philippines, but I did live in a very religious village once as a child. Yes, the whole village relied on the local Church bells as an alarm clock. (Three round of bells ringing suddenly often meant some villager just departed.)
