As the dust settles on Christmas, many Blues will soon be receiving an extra present courtesy of Everton Football Club.

As part of our #bluecrimbo campaign, we invited fans to help turn the city Blue by using the hashtag on Twitter, opening windows of our online advent calendar and uploading their festive pictures.

Evertonians worldwide helped us reach our goal on Christmas Eve, when our virtual map of Liverpool turned completely Blue. In the process of getting there, a prize was awarded to a random participant each day.

There was also our Felli's Stocking competition, in which we invited users to create a wishlist of Everton merchandise up to the value of £200.

Sam Reaney and Daniel Allen were our first winners - with the latter having his stocking hand-delivered by Darron Gibson.

Our final three stocking winners are Danielle Vedmore, Richard Doyle and Kathryn Ambrose, and the trio can look forward to receiving their complete wishlist in the coming days.

Following our first 11 daily giveaways, Joe McGlynn bagged himself a signed copy of Everton: The Official Autobiography on Wednesday 12 December.

Viv Raven was next to scoop a prize - a copy of the 1986/87 Season Review DVD - while Jacob Ashton followed up the next day to claim an Everton Football Club diary.

James McCabe will be the envy of the pool hall with his Everton pool cue and case, while Thomas McCarten earned himself a subscription to the match programme for the rest of the season.

A copy of Need For Speed: Most Wanted will be finding its way to Scott Poole, while Emma Lewis can use her new Everton piggy bank.

Paul Farley's contribution to #bluecrimbo was enough to win a copy of FIFA 13 for PS3, while Matthew Dutton did similarly to bag a copy of Everton: The Official Autobiography signed by the Blues boss himself, David Moyes.

The prizes started to become grander as the big day loomed, with Jackie Anderson scooping two tickets to Everton's game against Manchester City courtesy of the Club's official travel partner, Thomas Cook Sport.

Cheryl Peters got involved to win a pair of tickets to the Blues' home clash with Swansea, while Anthony Iddon now has two tickets for the visit of West Brom.

David Blackhurst will be sporting a new Everton Sekonda Limited Edition watch on his wrist, while the Christmas Day prize of a 2012/13 home shirt signed by the entire squad is sure to take pride of place in the home of Rebecca Vicary.

And in a special Twitter competition held midway through the month, Lynne Hill and Matthew Wear won copies of Everton: The Official Autobiography signed by skipper Phil Neville and Marouane Fellaini.

All winners are in the process of being contacted via the email accounts registered to Make sure you are registered to the site to be in with a chance of winning future competitions. Click here to register.
