Midnight Tolling of the Temple Bells

Ringing the bell at a temple on New Year's Eve is a Buddhist tradition.

Bells are rung 108 times in that according to Buddhism it is said that man has 108 troublesome desires, and by hearing the bells toll 108 times people can rid themselves of such desires at the end of the year.
