    60 Days To Christmas - Event And Giveaway


    Welcome friends to another interesting Event. Making friends is easy but getting a good friend is always tedious!! I made some really good friends in this blogosphere and recently I got a new friend Priya.R owning the space Cook like Priya. Am really very happy to announce that we are together gonna conduct a very special event....

    "60 Days To Christmas"

    Grab this logo!!

    Yes its gonna be a Christmas special event!! Wow it was just like the last Christmas had been over few months ago, days are just flying and now we have just 60 days to Christmas!!! When you say the word Christmas the first thing that strikes your minds are Cribs, Gifts, Santa, Reindeer, Christmas trees, Carols, Celebrations, and obviously Jingle bells Song!!! But above all there is something that is being forgotten or even being ignored..I know everybody knows its Christ's B'day a special day, but what do we need to celebrate about actually? A Savior was given to us to carry away our sins, sickness, miseries on a cross. He gave up everything for our sake and took away the punishment that were meant to be ours. We must celebrate this greatness, share his love and spread his mercy. That's what we should celebrate Christmas for!! A simple manger scene is not what we should focus on...the whole journey of Christ's Salvation starts on this awesome day and all these should be remembered praised and shared.

    Coming to the event me and Priya had decided a long time ago about this event and wanted to make it very special. It is her very first event and am really amazed with her skills of creating the logo and naming the event!!

      1. Hi Meenu reg archived post you must repost the old post once again or create a separate post with a link recipe pic and logo and link it back to this page Meenu..
        About the Christmas theme; nothing complicated Meenu, there are lots of Christmas props like stars, bells, christmas trees etc right using them or doing something related to Christmas gives u an added advantage that's all nothing else you can link normal recipes too.
