About this year’s holiday card

Now that our kids are 3 years old, we have dozens of good family photos to choose for the holiday card. I picked this photo from Diwali this year (November 14). Of course Nishanth would not let go of that toy gun …

Holiday Schedule of Chandoo.org

Our Forum:

Chandoo.org Forums will remain online and probably active during this holiday season. Although most regulars & ninjas would be away, you can post your Excel questions & hopefully someone will help you out.

Our Online Store:

Our online store will remain available and you can continue to purchase your favorite Excel training programs or templates. Please note that there will be 1 day delay in getting your login details for purchases made on Christmas day or New Year Day.

Online Classes, Student Doubts & Questions:

All our online classrooms will be open in this holiday season. You can enjoy the video lessons & ask questions. Please expect 2 day delay for questions posted between 25 December to 1 January.


If you send me an email in next 2 weeks, please expect some delay. We are expecting quite a few relatives & guests during this holidays and I am not hoping to spend too much time online. If you do not hear from me, send a reminder after 7th of Jan.

Once again…

On behalf of Chandoo.org family, staff & volunteers, I wish you a merry Christmas & happy New Year 2013. I hope & pray that your life is filled with happiness, wealth & health in this holidays & going forward.

Thank you.
