My house is full of musical clocks. On the hour, every hour we have different tunes being played in different rooms! It makes for a great atmosphere and over the years, it has really helped the kids tell the time.
Mind you when you are on the phone for business it can be embarrassing to have the clocks start a tuneful hourly rendition of Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious or even worse, Lion King’s, Can you feel the love tonight?
Did you know that the mechanical clock was introduced into Japan by the Jesuit missionaries or Dutch merchants in the sixteenth century.
My clocks are not as traditional as the lantern clocks of the 16th century but they still keep great time and have a Japanese flair!
