Those are Malmark handbells on the left and Schulmerich bells on the right.

On today's show, a story on a Christmasy theme: Handbells!

But also, a not-so-Christmasy theme: A decades-long feud between two big bell companies, located right down the road from each other.

But then, a Christmasy ending: Peace!

Music: Arsis Handbell Ensemble's "Danse Macabre" and "Morning Mood" and Sonos Handbell Ensemble's "The Nutcracker," "Sleigh Ride" and "Hava Negila."
