And when do the bells toll?

A strange phenomenon here is that the bells in the belfries don't toll on the hour. It is now 12:15 and the bells are ringing*. They did NOT begin to ring at noon. Furthermore, I have noticed them ringing at other times of the day on other days, but I have no idea at what time or on what days. It's not every hour, and it's not every Thursday at 12:15, so what the heck is the pattern? And what the heck are they ringin' for?

*The bell rang for 10 minutes. Why 10 whole stinkin' minutes???
