    Everyday is Ukulele day for me... I have not been more than fifteen feet from one since I started playing in August- but I will be extra certain to PLAY it everywhere I go tomorrow.

    Really? In the dead of winter in minus temps when you wouldn't dare take out a wooden instrument that you didn't want trashed?

    I must say, whilst I admire the idea, the first I saw was today! This sort of thing needs lots of advance notice.

    Also - it being Groundhog day today, perhaps another day would have suited better.

    Sorry to sound negative, I am just trying to be constructive.

    Uhhh, May 2 is already "Play your Ukulele Day".

    And, yes, every day is ukulele day for me. Leave Feb. 2 to the dang groundhog.

    I can't believe I missed the memo on this one. Only found out about it today (the 3rd). Oh, the celebration I would have had.

    Oh well. Next year I guess.

    I agree, I always consider Aug 23rd, "the Day"
