Well, at least that’s what Ingrid Michaelson is singing over on my Amazon Echo. (Sorry Bing, please forgive me!)
Thanksgiving is just a few days away and my stomach is already longing for my dad’s “super moist, bettah then da rest” turkey! Secret tip guys... he pretends he’s making brisket...lol! Low and slow, finished with a broiler sear. Seriously, at our large Thanksgiving gathering people don’t even touch the other turkeys. They end up taking their dry birds home while my dad’s roasting pot is empty. Can't wait! So with Thanksgiving being tomorrow here in the US we can see just over the hill to CHRISTMAS, the most wonderful time of year! And with that said, it gives me great pleasure to announce to you again: Leolani’s 12 Days of Christmas ukulele giveaway!
So in this post I’m gonna break down what this contest/giveaway is all about. And, yes, the challenges too! Just like we did last year we are gonna be giving away 12 ukuleles. One ukulele each day! To enter, check out our list of daily challenges. There are 12 of them, one for each day. You can enter all 12 days or just pick the ones that strike your fancy. Just remember to get your submission in before midnight (HST) on the day you want to enter (just like Cinderella). We will be announcing the winners the following day on our socials!
And as the big guy in the red suit delivers gifts to children all over the world, we decided to follow his lead and open this contest to everyone. US and International! If you win, we will find a way to get it to you. Even if we have to ship ELF-EXPRESS, USS (United Sleigh Service) or NPPS (North Poll Post). All are welcome to enter!
So the next logical question is how does one win one of these awesome ukuleles. We have teamed up with a special team of elves, twelve amazing musical influencers and artists to help spread the holiday cheer! Each of these artist is comman(deer)ing one of the twelve days, and they have personally picked the specific holiday challenges. They are really festive and fun! We hope you get excited looking over. We know that not everyone entering owns a ukulele, so we have both ukulele friendly and non ukulele friendly challenges to choose from. Hopefully a Leolani/KUMU will be your first ukulele, that would be jolly!
So without further ado, here are the challenges!
HO, HO, HO... those elves are so cheerful! The challenges start next week, in 48 hours, on Friday, November 26th so mark your calendars! Here’s how to enter my fellow sugar plums: 1. Use the hashtag #MerryUkeMas2021 + tag @leolani_kumu_ukulele in your post. 2. Follow @leolani_kumu_ukulele on Instagram or Facebook @Leolani Ukulele. or subscribe to Leolani KUMU Ukulele on YouTube.
3. Post your entry to Instagram or Facebook by 11:59pm HST (Hawaii Standard Time) on the day you are entering. This year we are also adding the option of emailing your submission to email@example.com. Day one is on November 26th, just a few days away.
4. Turn you account setting to public (at least on the day you are entering) so our judges will be able to see your festive submissions.
So be as creative and festive as possible. Let’s make this giveaway super fun! You can enter all twelve days, or just one. You have a chance to win all twelve ukulele or one. It’s totally up to you. The more days you enter... the more chances you get to win! This contest will have up to twelve winners so go tell it on the mountain! If you send in your submission via email, know that we will be posting it to our socials announcing if you win. Everyone will want to see your awesome submission!
HARK! You can prepare your entries whenever! Like right after reading this post. As long as it doesn’t come in after the daily deadline. So if you are baking cookies today you can enter for day 2, and make a Christmas cookie in the shape of a ukulele and submit it already. You don’t have to wait till day 2 to submit. Just don’t submit it on day 3 because the Grinch will give you that devilish grin!
We will announce the winners the following day on our socials. We can‘t wait to see your submissions! If you have a ukulele on your Christmas list this year... be sure to enter. (Hint, hint… go for the more challenging days, better chance to win!)
If you have any questions, ask away on our socials and we will get back to you with Prancer speed!
