Merry Christmas to all our old friends and new visitors at Peace Couple!
The Peace Song for the day is “Over The River And Through The Woods”. It is based on a Thanksgiving poem, though, is often turned into Christmas music. The song was written by Lydia Maria Child (1802 – 1880) , whom Wikipedia notes: “…was an American abolitionist, women’s rights activist, opponent of American expansionism, Indian rights activist, novelist, and journalist and Unitarian.”
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!)
So, with the holiday spirit in mind, the Peace Song of the Day is the interwoven song, “Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy“. This song was created especially for a Bing Crosby TV holiday special. It is performed by Bing Crosby and David Bowie. It resonates with warmth, compassion, and a harmony between the ying and the yang.
