christmas cheer and kristmas in kerala

This christmas season I got two of these...
from Banno and Kiran
Thank You... Thank You...

This award is given to a blog that invests and believes in PROXIMITY – nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

I pass this on to people I met only in the virtual world through their blogs that are simply delightful!

(sticking to four instead of eight because I have excrutiatingly slow connectivity here and have the energy to link only four blogs just now. )

And the two brothers decided to go for midnight mass with their parents. The two wives sat at home to watch over the sleeping kids- we gift wrapped all the gifts, chattered away after a stiff cognac. The brothers stopped at a cousin's place ostensibly to pick him up. The parents moved on thinking the boys would follow them into church. The mass was around three hours or something. The boys met the parents on their way back- a lot of foul mallu brandy having swallowed the time meant for church. Merry Chirstmas to you too!

Sounds great. Sanah must love Christmas. I do, and miss all the buzz in TV. Sigh. Have loads of fun. Merry Christmas and lots and lots of love, cheer, peace, and work in the new year.

Hope the christmas spirit lives through the year for you and yours.

Congratulations on the many awards.

surely can't claim this after my hiatus; but I will continue to shamefully devour all your posts.

And I'll be damned if Christmas comes only once a year, so a merry xmas to you and yours.
