60 Days To Christmas Round Up & Winner Announcement

Hello dear friends, finally we have come up with the results of; 

"60 Days To Christmas Event" 

Hosted by Priya & Me 
(October 26 - December 24; 2012)

We are so very sorry for the delay, but am sure you would have understood our plight we had 694 recipes [323 + 2 from readers recipes, from my space and 369 from Priya's space] to analyse and we wanted the results to be genuine. The winner selection was the most easiest part as we had used random number generator. We are so happy to that we got good responses and we feel delighted to announce the winner of this successful event on this special day. 

I really thank Priya for being a good support and a very good event partner, we enjoyed working together, discussing things and sorting out everything together. Throughout the event felt that doing things together did help us know new things, do work more perfectly. 

I really wanted to give an award to all who sent the recipes but its not possible as we all know. But we have tried our maximum to award the best recipes. Me and Priya had taken so much time to go through each and every recipe as we did not want anyone's effort to be underestimated.  I know by now you would have scrolled down to view the winner. There is only 1 winner for this event and we have kept in mind all rules stated in our announcement page. Click HERE to check them.

Totally 122 bloggers had participated and 2 of my readers Shafeeka and Meena had sent their recipes too. Every recipe deserves a win, because we know how much effort and work a recipe needs and so every participant is a winner in her own way, but still a competition is a competition, hope you agree and so we have tried to do justice to all the recipes and have selected few awards here to motivate the participants. Those who haven't won an award doesn't mean that your recipes were not eligible nor were inferior to other recipes, its just an event and hope you take things positively.  

Now its time to shower awards!!

Participation Certificate for all!!

Our thanks and warm wishes to all who participated in our event and made it successful!! 
Please do accept this award as a token of our appreciation for you!! Thanks again!!

Range order 

Since the event ran in two separate pages we consolidated all the recipes in an order. The order resembles that of a menu, first comes the appetizer, soups, rice and curry recipes, then comes the dessert, sweets, cakes and drinks. 
So the recipes linked to my space comes first then comes links from Priya's space. 

(My space links)(Readers recipes)(Priya's space links) 
(1 to 323) - (324 to 325) - (326 to 694)

So the range is 1 to 694
