    Anyone have a grandfather clock in their home? Where does this “minhug” come from? What is the origin of the grandfather clock? How much does one cost? Is it a tad old fashioned or quite fashionable to have one in one’s home?


    Never heard anything about that, can you please explain?


    Ask Grandpa. 🙂

    I’m sure some of the Grandpa’s or Grandma’s in the CR would be happy to fill you in.

    You never saw those big tall clocks that tick and when it strikes midnight it chimes ding-ding-ding-ding?


    Retro is in now

    The good ones are extremely expensive. As for fashionable – well it depends upon how much room you have and what the style of the rest of your furniture is. If you have a house full of antiques or very traditional furniture, it would look wonderful. OTOH, if you are furnished in ultra modern or early American – not so hot. Also, most of them ding every 15 minutes and really ding dong on the hour when all of the chimes sound the hour = 12 times at 12 o’oclock.

    No way, it would drive me cukoo…


    There’s a couple across the street from us, and they collect grandfather clocks of all types. They have several that are well over 100 years old, and I think one that’s close to 200 years old. It’s fascinating to hear the history behind some of them, and how they came to own them.

    We had a grandfather clock in our house while I was growing up. No minhag, just my parents liked how it looked. I used to love watching the clock technician work when he came once a year to maintain it.


    its a minhag?!?!?!?! I thought its just nice!

    ha ha ha ha

    Minhag is it also a minhag to have a couch??!! please??!!
