I wanted to repost this post from last December... this has been a very popular idea and I thought it was worth sharing again as you get ready to make up gifts for this Christmas season. enjoy!
I decorated a ton of these tins (and I know you will ask... so I'll tell you.. they are in the "Dollar Spot" at Target) to give as little favors or Christmas gifts. I had never heard the M & M Christmas story before, but when I read it on line last week I knew I wanted to do something with it!
here is the story:
The M & M's Christmas Story
by Pam Ridenour
As you hold these candies in your hand,
and turn them, you will see...
The M becomes a W, an E, and then a 3.
They tell the Christmas story. It's one I'm sure you 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 for the wise men, who came bearing gifts.
W is for Worship. Hallelujah, praise His name!
So as you eat these candies,
or share them with your friends,
remember the meaning of Christmas.
It's a love story that never ends.
Have a great day!
