60 Days to Christmas Event & Giveaway


HOSTING ALL BAKES, SWEETS, DESSERTS & INDIAN PALAHARAM 

Hi All,

Its great to have friends and its great to do things together. Today my friend Divya Pramil (youtoocancookindianfood) and I are organising a 60 days to Christmas event where its solely dedicated to the favorite season of the year. Ah! Christmas, the biggest holiday of the year. To me this season is fun, special and brings fond memories. So to make this Christmas even more special in the blog world Divya and Me planned this event for almost 3 months: P. Not to forget 2012 has been super special for the 2 of us as it’s our first year of blogging and this is my very first event. 

"60 Days To Christmas"

Grab this logo!!

Christmas has both a strong religious and traditional meaning. It has a certain feel, all to itself, that you usually do not feel at any other time of the year. The true meaning of Christmas is the gift of son Jesus to this world, the Bible says

“For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace”    Isaiah 9:6

"And she (Mary) will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for it is He who will save His people from their sins." Matthew 1:21

Going to the event the name says it all, its a 60 days event starting from today 26-Oct-2012 until 24-Dec-2012. The only important thing to remember is that I will be hosting all bakes, sweets desserts and indian palaharam in my space and Divya will host all themains, sides and savory dishes in hers. We do have a surprise awards and superb gifts for this event. And we just made it super simple by randomly selecting a winner combining both teams...
