Word Wednesday - tintinnabulation

tintinnabulation \tin-tih-nab-yuh-LAY-shuhn\, noun:
A tinkling sound, as of a bell or bells.

I picked this one today because it sounded like a fun word.
Say it out loud.
Go ahead
I'll wait.
Fun isn't it?
Not sure it sounds like bells when you say it. It sounds more gutteral to my ears. But hey, English is an odd language.
Not sure I could use it in a sentence easily.
How about you?
