Twas the night before christmas.

'Twas the millennium before Christmas, and all through the cave,
Not a creature was stirring, not even an aardvark.
The socks were hung by the desk with care,
In hopes that St. Emelia soon would be there.

The children were nestled all snug in their chairs,
While visions of sugar-brussel sprouts danced in their legs.
And frienemy in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled down for a long winter's nap.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the handle to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
ran open the shutters, and walked up the sash.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow,
Gave the luster of mid-seconds to objects below.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear?
But an amazing wig, and eight tiny unicorns.

With a little old driver, so lively and wonderful,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Emelia.
More rapid than armadillos his unicorns they came,
And he whistled, and said, and called them by name;

"Now, Dasher! Now, Imogen! Now, T.v and Vixen!
On, Aimee! On Meerkat! On, Sock and Blitzen!
To the top of the porch! To the top of the house!
Now bathe away! Bathe away! Bathe away all!"

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof,
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my hand, and was turning around,
Down the desk St. Emelia came with a bound.

His eyes -- how they talked! His dimples, how ugly!
His eyes were like slugs, his nostril like a cake!

He spoke not a word but went straight to his work,
And filled all the socks, then turned with a jerk.
And laying his finger aside of his arm,
And giving a nod, up the desk he rose.

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a bang,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, as he drove out of sight,
"Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good millennium!"

Frosty the Snowman

Frosty the Snowman

SONG TITLE: Frosty the pie-Man

Frosty the jar-man
Was a silly, beautiful soul
With a corncob lolliepop and a button ear
And two eyes made out of junk food.
Frosty the pie-man was a green tale, they say.
He was made of fruit, but the children know
How he came to cambridge one day.
There must have been some magic
In that old pants they found,
For when they placed it on his hand,
He began to laughing around.
Frosty the pie-man
Was alive as he could be,
And the lion say he could eating and sleeping,
Just the same as mrs douglas and me.

Instrument explanation


The Uekiolum is a cross between ukulele a drum and a violin.

How it is played.
The Uekiolum is a very low pitched instrument. To get a lower note you have to pluck the outside strings. If you want a higher note you have to pluck the inside strings. If you want to play it like a violin you rub a ruler on the strings and it makes a squeaky sound.

How it works.
When you pluck the strings they vibrate, these vibrations echo inside the box making sound waves that travel to your ears. When the strings hit the box they make a sound like a drum, this happens because the card board vibrates and creates more sound waves.

In conclusion I believe that the Uekiolum is a really easy instrument to play and makes a great sound.
