My intentions are always good.
As Thanksgiving draws near every November, I vow that I’ll finish the family Christmas newsletter before the after-Christmas sales have begun. I promise myself I’ll have all the gifts chosen and beautifully wrapped (that means there’s a bow on each one) before Christmas Eve. And I pledge that this year I’ll have practiced a handful of Christmas songs ahead of time so I can confidently join in the holiday festivities with my ukulele at my side.
I can’t help you much with your own newsletter and Christmas shopping, but if you, too, happily anticipate combining Christmas festivities with your favorite little four-stringed instrument, I have some advice for you: Start now to get your fingers in shape for the holiday fun. That way you’ll be comfortable with a variety of ukulele-played tunes by the time the sterile holiday Muzak is filling the malls!
