Coming to an acceptable level of Christmas mood has been rather difficult this year, partly because Christmas ukulele videos in languages other than English have been rather hard to find.

Santa did bring me a nice Christmas present though, with the addition of a new language to the Ukulele and Languages collection : Corsican.

With a couple of days to go before Christmas, I’d like to wish you all a very merry Christmas, filled with ukulele songs and languages.

If you’ve come here just for the Christmas videos, scroll down to the end of this post. (It’s a bad idea though because you’ll miss some really good videos).

Let’s start the World tour with non-christmas songs in various styles to suit different tastes.

Country: United-States / Language: English

Many original songs in this week’s Ukulele World Tour, with a focus on Europe and Asia. We’ll be starting with France (yes, I know France is video number one yet again, but it is really nice), moving North-East to Germany then Poland, back to Switzerland and end up in Thailand.

1. Country: France / Language: French

Les Poupées Gonflées have just released a new song, Les Copines de la Femme de Mon Mari (The girlfriends of my husband’s wife).  Lovely vocal harmonies, great video, a real treat.

Many thanks to Valérie from Les Poupées Gonflées for sending me the link.

If you’ve been trying to make sense of my posting schedule lately, chances are you didn’t have much luck. I haven’t been completely quiet though and you might have read my interview on Jim D’Ville‘s Play Ukulele by Ear blog.

Jim came up with really interesting questions on the similarities between language learning and ukulele learning and I must say I really enjoyed reflecting on the subject. You can read the interview here. I also discuss my ukulele learning process, the difficulties I encountered and the reason why I started this blog.

Now, let’s get back to our World Tour business. Today I saw a rat outside the window at work and this reminded me that I had seen a few ukulele videos featuring or mentioning rats lately. So we’re on for a Ukulele & Rats World Tour.

Close your eyes, spin a globe and point your finger anywhere on the globe…

… and today’s winner is … Poland.

Poland where we get to watch another ukulele taking shape,  destined to be a present for the ukulele maker’s dad according to the title of the video.

The video is well laid out so we get to see all the steps needed to come up with a beautiful looking ukulele.
