" Christmas Contest"


"The Twelve Days of Christmas"


user posted image



Well, the moment has finally arrived were we begin our Celtic Radio celebration of Christmas through our annual 12 Days of Christmas Giveways!


12 DAYS CONTEST!
Starting tonight we will be giving away a total of 12 CDs from now until December 25th! We are a little behind on our contest this year, so we will start things off with three CDs to giveaway later on tonight, so watch this thread.

The contest will work in this way. We will post the CD or prize to be given away in the early morning and then at some point in the day we will ask for the first person to respond to win the prize. Only 1 prize per person during this contest.

To give you an idea of what CDs we will be offering and on what days, we will post a schedule here soon.

And to help notify you of when the CD will be given away, we will be sending out a Tweet, Myspace and Facebook notice about 10-15 minutes before each CD becomes available.

Feel free to post your Celtic Radio Christmas greetings in this thread and......

Merry Christmas!

Fantastic, I love this contest! It gives me another reason to check out what's new at CR beside the wonderful holiday music and great people of course.

Merry Christmas and good luck everyone!

Ok, here is how the contest works. Just be the first to post a message in this thread stating which CD you want and it is yours. Make sure you are the first to "grab" the CD. Check this thread after you post to make sure you are indeed the only one that has claimed the CD first. Once you know you have won the CD, send us an email using the contact form about and we will drop the CD in the mail to hopefully get it to you before Christmas.

Good Luck. More CDs will be posted each day!

Just wondering how many times we can win? Once a day or once over the whole contest?

Posted by: CelticRadio 16-Dec-2013, 09:03 PM
Wow, that was quick! biggrin.gif

You can only win 1 CD as part of this contest, but you are certainly eligible to win in our other contests like the monthly CD contest or the special raffle contests.

Lets see, we have:

Wallacegal = Firedance
Blue_rogue = Tinkers Christmas
1BrightStar = Coinneal

These are all excellent Christmas CDs that I think you will very much enjoy as donated by the musicians themselves. Be sure to email us your address and we will drop them in the mail tomorrow.

Our apologies on the delay in starting our yearly 12 Days of Christmas contest. Been having so many issues with our workstation, it died about a month ago and we thought it was all set and configured and then it crashed. Took us another 3-4 days to fix it - so we are finally back in business!

Hope everyone is having a great holiday season. Its a snowy and cold December here in the Northeast of the U.S......

Ok, be sure to tune in tomorrow for 9 Ladies dancing and Margo Rey's "This Holiday Night."

It's been snowing west of Detroit all day off and on. We probably got another inch so it's getting pretty deep here now.

Thanks for the CD yesterday! thumbs_up.gif

Posted by: CelticRadio 17-Dec-2013, 08:49 PM
Yes, it is a wonderful CD. You will know that you won by being the first to post a message that you want the CD and also that you have not won any previous CDs during this contest. We have you as winning the Coinneal CD yesterday. wink.gif

Which we are going to drop in the mail tomorrow because right now it is snowing pretty hard outside.

So, the next person to post that has not previously won a CD in this special contest gets Margo's CD. smile.gif

Thanks to all that played in our 12 Days of Christmas Contest CD. We've already received more CDs for next year's Christmas CD contest including a healthy donation from Marc Gunn and his "A Celtic Christmas" CD.

We seem to be in holiday mode all week, so hopefully by the Weekend we will be back with some updates on Celtic Radio, but for it is party time!

As of yesterday all CDs have been mailed and so everyone should be receiving their CDs soon.

Surprised Iolanda to hear you received your CD already considering it was from Boston to Italy. I guess the U.S. postal service can not be all that bad compared to USP.

We generally use the United Postal Service for all of our mailings.
