Celebrate the season in The Spirit of the Holidays!
In The Spirit of the Holidays
While the holiday season comes but once a year, the spirit of the season should live on for the entire year. That’s the message of 'In The Spirit of The Holidays' the holiday single from Toronto roots duo Sue and Dwight.
The song was written during the lockdown of 2020. Sue was reflecting on how the world had changed unexpectedly and that for most, there would not be the usual get-togethers of family and friends over the holidays. Many of us were understandably disheartened at the prospect. But it was also a reminder that the spirit of the holidays… peace, caring and compassion… can carry on and are needed all year around because we never know what lies ahead.
The song brings together a number musical elements to convey its message. Seasonal clavinet and bells blend with guitars, accordion and the duo’s harmonies. For 2022, the duo has also created a new fresh remix of the song.
Celebrate the Spirit of the Holidays…peace on earth, goodwill to all that lasts throughout the year.
