Peace Song for 12/1/2011: Getting The Holiday Spirit

Since it is the first day of December, we decided it was okay to insert a little holiday spirit into the mix. (We think it’s okay to be sentimental, as long as you don’t put up Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving!)

Hope For The World: Peace Song of the Day for 9/21/2011

Wait Till The Sun Shines, Nellie” is the Peace Song for the Day, as chosen by Susanna, Duchess of Peace. You can find the words to this golden oldie, Barbershop song at Rise Up Singing on page 82.

The Royal Song of the Day is a project of Duke Augustus and Duchess Susanna, The Duke and Duchess of Peace. The Duke and Duchess recognize that one of the paths to peace is to find soulful and nonviolent entertainment, and to express oneself with art and song.
