I don't know if this superstition suits exactly this case, but the jingling of bells is commonly believed all over the world to banish evil spirits and attract luck. Also, it is believed that the sounds of bells and windchimes bring the prayers to gods/heaven. This derives from believing that birds take the prayers of people and then carry them with their songs upwards to heaven.
