Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

It is very common to play the tambourine at Christmas (in order) to sing Christmas carols. It is a percussion instrument with bells and it makes a very nice sound. Also, it is a fairly cheap musical instrument. People think that the tambourine comes from the Arabs. On Christmas Eve, my family and I sing with the tambourine. It is a beautiful moment because family is very important in Spain. I love playing the tambourine! And you, what instrument do you play?

Clever stuff happening!
