Announcing : Christmas Feast Event

After the fun and frolic celebrations of Children's Day, Diwali, Onam, Navratri, Krishna and Ganesh Chaturthi and Rakhi, Festive Food Events are all geared up and are back to celebrate this whole month as the ''Christmas Feast Event''

Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus. The holiday's connection to Christ is obvious through its Old English root of "Cristes maesse" or Christ's Mass. For Christians, it is the time to renew one's faith, give generously and consider the past. But Christmas is also a secular celebration of family--one that many non-practicing Christians and people of other religions are comfortable accepting as their own.

Christmas is also a fascinating miscellany of traditions: one that combines pre-Christian pagan rituals with modern traditions. Every family that celebrates Christmas has its own customs--some surprisingly universal, others entirely unique--but all comfortably familiar in their seeming antiquity.

Modern customs of the holiday include gift-giving, church celebrations, and the display of various decorations—including the Christmas tree, lights, mistletoe, nativity scenes and holly. Santa Claus (also referred to as Father Christmas).

Santa Claus is visting your blogs to enjoy the Christmas Feast

Guidelines for Celebrating Christmas Feast Event

Prepare any dish that goes with the festive spirit of Christmas. One can even participate by posting festive pictures, Christmas decorations, winter scene, description of Christmas festival etc.

The last date of sending entries for Christmas Feast is 2nd January 2009.

Bloggers need to add a link back to this event announcement. I would be glad if you can include the Christmas Feast logo. There are no restrictions on the number of entries.

Send in your entries at with the subject line ''Festive Food'' along with the below mentioned information:

  • Name:
  • Dish Name:
  • Blog’s Name:
  • Blog URL:
  • Post URL:
  • Picture of the Dish:
Note ~ Entries without an email will not be included in the round up.

Non Bloggers need not get upset, email your recipe along with the picture. We will post it on your behalf and include it in the round up.

Old posts are accepted, provided they are republished by linking back this event announcement along with the logo.

So don't let the Santa down and enjoy Christmas Feast with him.

anudivya 8 December 2008 at 18:48  

Hey Purva this is nice, I will try to send it as well.
But one thing... the round up is on the 2nd of Dec right?
It would have been awesome if it was before Christmas, so people can actually benefit from the event, create new dishes from the various entries... Just a thought.

Nice event.. i will try to send it..

Purva Desai 8 December 2008 at 20:07  

Anu thank you for your valuable suggestion. The idea behind keeping the last date as 2nd is, people dont have to go extra miles to prepare specially for the event, they can post the dishes which they have prepared for the Christmas Eve...
