Growing up, Christmas was filled with wonderful Christmas music. My sister and I both play instruments so one of us could always be heard playing carols. The annual Christmas band concert was a highlight, especially when my sister played in her college symphony. I miss hearing her play, but we still have carols playing throughout the season.
Whether your family plays an instrument or not, I think this little trumpet is a great addition to our “Countdown to Christmas Calendar“.
This has become a family favorite. Now that our youngest son plays trumpet, I made some for our tree and also have made these to tie on gifts.
