    Wearing bells?

    Anyone know where the expression... with bells on.... came from. I know there is a historical origin, and I cant remember what it is

    The expression Iíll be there with bells on indicates the speakerís assurance of arrival at an event and has been ascribed to American settlers, whose Conestoga wagons often arrived at their destinations with bronze bells ringing to announce the arrival of a party with friendly intentions
