¡Feliz Navidad! Or just a “Prosperous Year and Happiness!”

As the mistletoe has been hung, and the Christmas punch (my recipe here) has been prepared, my family is still trying to fulfill commitments and finish some chores – at home, work, with final exams and/or volunteering – before gathering in Toronto (Ontario, Canada) for Christmas.  I will not be bringing my laptop, so I will have minimal WI-FI exposure for a few days, although I have wished for a new phone, so we will see if I will have to denounce the premature end of my hiatus (a little birdy told me I might be getting it, sshh!)

I would like to thank everyone who kindly stops by my blog, enriching my posts with comments and likes.  I would also like to take the opportunity to wish you and your loved ones the best time possible, wrapping up this crazy year of 2018; whether you are still in hopeful expectation, have already celebrated a major holiday, or observe none, please receive my sincere wishes for happy moments, a little peace, lots of health, and the very best for the end of 2018, and the New Year!

Please enjoy this youtube audio https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SK7cpuhwoP0 of José Feliciano’s “Feliz Navidad” performed by Canadian singer (yes, who else?) Michael Bublé, and Mexican singer Thalia; as the lyrics say, I wish you: “¡Feliz Navidad, próspero año y felicidad!” – “A Merry Christmas, a prosperous year and happiness!”

As I was looking for an image for the post, I received a nomination for the Sunshine Blogger Award from the incredibly talented, clever writer and blogger Kristian @ Tales from the Mind of Kristian. I feel very honoured by the nomination, and thank Kristian for thinking of my blog, providing not one, but two beautiful images for my post, and – last but not least – for asking only three questions!

The rules:
– Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link back to their blog.
– Answer the (eleven; Kristian sent only three) questions asked by the blogger who nominated you.
– Nominate (eleven) other bloggers and ask them (eleven) new questions.
– Notify the nominees about it on one of their own posts.
– List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post and/or your blog site.

My answers to Kristian’s questions:
What will you be eating on the 25th of December? I will be at my in-laws’, so I do not know for sure, but the traditional menu is a humongous roasted turkey, stuffing, and an endless spread of delicious homemade Greek dishes and desserts.
What would you like to see happen in 2019? A real commitment from every single human being to save our planet from an irreversible environmental disaster.
Name three things you are grateful for: My family, my extended families, and my friends (those near, far and in the blogosphere).

I really liked Kristian’s short list of questions, so I would like to keep them as the questions for my nominees, and also bend the rules even further by nominating only three bloggers:
Linda @ Just Writing
Theresa @ Culture Shocks
Christine Bolton @ Poetry for Healing
