Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2015 [Holiday Gift Inside]



A big, warm & pleasant hello to you.

I wish you a merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2015. May your holidays be filled with joy, togetherness, celebrations and fulfillment. May your new year be filled with hope, energy and awesomeness.

I want to tell you how thankful I am for all your support in this year. Every time you visit our website, read an article, leave a comment, enroll in a course, purchase a product, read one of my books, listen to a podcast episode, watch a video or tell your friends about Chandoo.org, I feel nothing but gratitude, thankfulness and amazement. 2014 is the most successful year since starting Chandoo.org, all thanks to you. Heartfelt thanks to you, from my family, staff and volunteers.

About this year’s holiday card

We took this picture recently when we went to Udaipur (a city in northern India). For a change, no one closed their eyes when the camera clicked. Click on the picture to enlarge.

A holiday gift for you…

It gives me immense pleasure to give a gift to you this holiday season. Unfortunately, my sleigh is no where to be found and the reindeer have wandered away. So I can’t drop this gift thru your chimney. Would you be a darling and download it by clicking below button? 🙂

Holiday schedule of Chandoo.org

This year, I am going to lie low and let my kids take over the blog during holiday season.

I am just kidding. 😉

Even though my kids will not be posting anything, I will try to make some time to update the blog during next 2 weeks. Here is what you can expect.

  • 29 December (Monday) – People & websites that helped me in 2014, thank you message
  • 31 December (Wednesday) – Best of Chandoo.org in 2014
  • 1 January (Thursday) – Free 2015 Excel calendar & daily planner template
  • 5 January (Monday) – Regular broadcasting of Excel awesomeness

Our forum:

Our Excel forum will be up and running during the holiday season. That said, I would not expect quick help for any problems as most of our regular members would be away on holiday break. You have higher chance of getting true for rand()=rand() than finding someone to answer your Excel question during next few days. So be patient and enjoy the holidays.

Online store:

Our online store will be open. Any purchase you make for training programs, templates or eBooks will be delivered as promised. If you join our course on Christmas eve or day or on new year day, please expect to receive your password by the end of next working day. If you have any support query, please expect to hear a resolution by 7th of January.


If you are sending me an email, please expect a reply only after 7th of Jan. If you have something urgent to say, you can call me (find my number on the site).

Once again…,

On behalf of my family, our staff, volunteers and well wishers, let me wish you a very pleasant holiday season and an awesome start to 2015.

    Hi Chandoo,

    Usually we only think that Excel allows iterative calculations when the circular reference warning appears. Somewhere I read that Excel cells have "memory", thanks to the programming of controlled iterations.


    I congratulate to you this holiday season with this greeting card with a Blinking Excel Christmas Tree made entirely using standard formulas to animate each cell, without using VBA macros or scroll bars or the need to repeatedly press the F9 key.

    Enjoy and happy holidays!
