I'm sending this Christmas card with good wishes to all the Seasonista players. When I tell "civilians" that I'm involved with ukuleles, none of them grasp the breadth of fun and friendship, warmth and encouragement that is found in participating in the Seasons of the Ukulele. It's only an online forum, right?

Well, I've made numerous nice acquaintanceships and some real friendships here, and I have plans to meet some of these pals next year. So, great thanks for the UU Forum and the Seasons sub-forum! You've made my life better!

Happy holidays, Seasonistas, and best wishes for many fine days of strumming in 2014!

And a very Merry Christmas To You Ginny. I feel that you couldn't have expressed how the friendships here brighten the lives of all of us. I hope this new coming year brine you and your family the best of blessings...And all the rest of the UUS family too!

Bon Nadal and FeliÁ Any Nou from Catalonia to all Seasonistas!

Ginny, what a pity we never met up when we were over your way! I echo your opening statement 100% - I actually did get to meet some Seasonistas in real life this summer and they were as nice in person (or even nicier) than they are on video and on here. Visca les seasons!

So that's what the fox says!

Happy ChristmaKwanzukkah to Seasonistas big and small! Looking forward to rounding out year 2 of the Seasons and seeing what 2014 has in store. Hugs and kisses and strums from Old Milwaukee.

Bless you all this season (GOD I HATE THE HOLIDAYS)...nope, rephrase. Bless you all every day. I am certain many of you have no idea what the seasons mean to me, but thank you for being there. Really, thank you. What fun we have had.

This place is Paradise for me...I used to be involved with a lovely forum community dedicated to George Harrison, then that board disappeared. Coming here, in a lot of ways, I have that feeling again. Merry Christmas to everybody, and a Happy New Year! There is nothing 'only' about online forums, and online friendships. Some of my closest friends I never met, and some of them, I haven't met yet.

Would surely be wonderful to make that happen sometime.

With all best wishes,

Merry Christmas Ginny!
And the happiest of holidays to all you fun Seasonista folks. Here's a little video Christmas card I made several years ago.
Music by Guy Lombardo and his Royal Canadians. (No ukes in his orchestra though).

At 11 after the hour it's the Winter Solstice all over the world at the same instant.

I'll strum a chorus or two of Old Lang Syne and send my best wishes to all the Seasonistas, thanks for another great year of fun.

Merry Christmas and holiday greetings to all the Seasonistas. I originally came to this site to buy a ukulele. Well, I have done that several times over, and eventually stumbled onto the Seasons. I entered one week, almost accidentally, and have done that quite a few times since.

I have made friends here with some, admired the musical heart and soul of everyone (whether I commented or not), and really moved to a whole new place in my relationship with my uke and music. I used to only do multi-tracking stuff, where I could do each part separate. Now I am playing much more all together, and it has really broadened my stuff.

Not to mention a clutch of great songs that I probably would have never attempted if not for the spur of different Seasons.

I will admit, there are times, watching my view count, where I think "Oh, it's not worth it for so few views". But then I remember two things - I'm doing it because I enjoy it, and a community of respected friends far outweighs the stardom I sometimes still long for in my imagination (old habit, I guess).

Thanks to you all, and may next year be even better for each and everyone of you.

Nadolig Llawen from Wales you lovely lovely people!!
Apologies I've been AWOL these last few weeks but even when I'm dragged away kicking and screaming, The Seasons are never far from mind. It's an honour to be a member of such a talented and inspirational gang. Peace, love and ukulele to you all x

Happy Everything to all my Seasonista friends! You have brought peace and love and brother(-and-sister-)hood, and creativity, expansion, and joy into my life and my heart these short four months that you've welcomed me into your world.

I love Casey's idea of meeting in person ... or at least "live" in real-time, virtually. Maybe we could arrange a Google hangout or webinar or something some mutually friendly time?

Much love to you all,
Wendy

My husband and I also want to wish everyone a wonderful Holiday Season. It has been a great year and we have participated when we could...but our hope for 2014 is to be able to join you even more. Take care.
My husband and I made this video Christmas greeting.

That would be incredible. If we could sort it out, it would be a first for me...well, the second time I've met anybody I knew online, but the first time I'd ever been involved in a Google Hangout or similar. Maybe sometime during UWC VI?

Howdy Dear Friends,

I thought I'd posted here when the thread started but recall now that I emailed Ginny at that time instead.
Happy/Peaceful/Loving Holidays and New Years to each of you.

Love,

Hey everyone! This is a great community, and you are all truly a blessing that has gotten me through some rough times. One of those rough patches was my Dad's stroke last year. Well, here he is helping me send you all a message! Behold the power of ukulele:

I had the good fortune to meet a couple of Seasonistas in person this year, Alemarco at a local uke festival and Uncle Elvis in Bermuda. And the additional good fortune to take part in a couple of intercontinental collaborations thanks to Greenie44.

Merry Xmas to Ginny and all the Seasonistas.

although Christmas is over, this morning we recorded a Christmassy song. This one goes out to all Seasonistas and pretty much says it all:
We All Stand Together!

Thanks for a fun year and all the nice words expressed on several digital platforms. Let's make the next year even more special!
