Don't "Ring" In The Season! Pluck 'n Strum It Properly...
Ukulele “Old West” Holiday iPad & iPhone Wallpapers
Mele Kalikimaka! Joyeux Noël! メリークリスマス Froehliche Weihnachten! Maligayang Pasko!
I enjoy noodling with the oh-so-sexy uke’s shape, ’tis quite pleasing to draw. And within the ukulele family nothing tops the “pocket” ukulele’s exaggerated, peanut perfect proportions, besting even its more popular big brother, the soprano, for pure ukie-ness. Anyway, with the holidays upon us it’s time to post more uke love.
Choose between iPhone or iPad versions, as well as a 5 x 7 inch size suitable for printing as your Holiday card (so please put away that soggy Santa hat your dog’s been teething on for the past year and tell the neighbor you won’t need to borrow his chocolate Labrador this afternoon for your Christmas card photo). All formats available in Hawaiian, English, French, German, Tagalog and Japanese.

“メリークリスマス” Japanese Ukulele Christmas Card
I’m super lucky to have some pals at my office who also love the uke — we sometimes play over lunch. One just recently moved here to the states from Japan, where he’d lived for 14 years since leaving China. Here’s our conversation today:
Me: How do you say “Merry Christmas” in Japanese?
Him: mmmnnn… “Merry Christmas”. What? We borrow.
