National Violin Day is annually celebrated on December 13th. This holiday honors the instrument known as the violin. The violin is a string instrument, usually with four strings tuned in perfect fifths. It is the smallest, highest-pitched member of the violin family of string instruments, which includes the viola and cello. It is played by drawing a bow across one or more strings, by plucking the strings or by a variety of other techniques.  To celebrate National Violin Day, listen to some violinists on Youtube!
