Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays… Happy New Year!


To be honest, this Christmas, was a fun filled Christmas time I had in years! I shut myself from any social medium interactions and spent a good amount of time with my family. Watched a movie in IMAX (The Hobbit), watched the entire Season 3 of Master Chef US and cooked the family lunch! In all, it was a complete family oriented affair!

Now to all the wonderful bloggers on WordPress, my sincere apologies that I wasn’t able to reply back to any of your new posts, comments and likes for the past week as I was too occupied with quality family time.  It was certainly hard not to come any closer to the Web, Facebook and WordPress! Hence, taking this opportunity to wish all the wonderful people around the world a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

And BTW, when people say holidays, the first thing that I remember is goodies and this post is no different the others…Over the last couple of months, there were a lot of kind-hearted bloggers who have conferred upon me numerous awards and I thank them from the bottom of my heart for considering my blog for these awards.

Thank You note:

  • Thanks to WordPress to initiate and share these wonderful awards across to different people and blogs. Wishing them to come with more and more encouraging awards and goodies for everyone on WordPress.
  • Thanks to every blogger who have taken time to stop by and appreciate my blog, my writing skills and help me understand different cultures, religions, races and languages!
  • Thanks to people around the world for feeding me those wonderful posts through their blogs.
  • Thanks to Shawn R JonesSoumyaAnd Life SmilesIgyslaineSummerSweta and numerous others for inspiring me every day with your amazing great stories and posts!
  • And lastly, thanks to all my family and friends and especially to my brother – Naresh for suggesting WordPress and its large community of great bloggers.

And now, it’s time for me to reciprocate that wonderful gesture on so many of those wonderful blogs! I hear by nominate the following blogs for different awards in different categories:

  1. Wow! Ganesh this is a wonderful post, with many well-deserved awards for you and this wonderful blog. Well done! And it’s easy to see how much work you put into this… whew!
    Thank you very kindly for including my humble blog in your R-E-A-L-I-T-Y award, I am honored :) I am looking forward to visiting your other recommended blogs that I’ve not seen before, as well as revisiting some I do know.
    Glad you shared about having had a wonderful holiday, and I too enjoy cooking and watching Food Network. Having extra family and friends around makes cooking even more rewarding!
    Thanks again for this delightful post, and best wishes to you and yours for continued joy in a prosperous year ahead.
    Hugs of gratitude, Gina

  2. Hallo Ganesh,

  4. Thank you Ganesh for the wonderful surprise award of the “Shine On Award.” And your wonderful words about bloggers on WordPress. We are all a pretty amazing group. I keep getting to know more and more people here. It is a world that expands ones mind and heart and soul. So supportive and friendly and amazingly creative. I will place my “Shine On Award” in a special place on my blog. It is rather like one of my new favorite groups: “Pink Floyd’s” song “Shine On You Crazy Diamond.” I love that song, actually rather addicted to it. Thanks again Ganesh for coming into my world and life here on WordPress and being so generous to me and so many others. jk jennifer-the secret keeper :-)
