The M&M Nativity

As you hold these candies in your hand and turn them, you will see the M becomes a W, an E and a 3. They tell the Christmas story; it's one I'm sure you'll know. It took place in a stable a long, long time ago.

The E is for the East where the star shone so bright;
The M is for the manger where Baby Jesus slept that night.
The 3 is the for Wisemen bearing gifts; with haste they came.
W is for worship; Angels sang praise to His name.

So as you eat these candies Or share them with a friend,
Remember the true meaning of Christmas
And never let it end!

This poem could be attached to a snack packet of M&M's, or a handful in a cellophane bag with ribbon... Great for neighbor gifts, friends, teachers or youth groups. I love finding simple ways to help remind us of the true meaning of Christmas!
