Christmas Treats, Final Post

Well, it's the last day of my series on handmade gift ideas.
Thank you to all who have been stopping by! :)  It makes my day to see the hits and read the comments, and I sincerely hope you've gleaned something from what I've shared here! :)

I really wanted to include this idea, because it points us back to the beginning.  Back to where it all started, and WHY we celebrate Christmas. Read on. :)

Day 12
A Christmas M&M Love Story

What's that?  You can't read what it says?  You wonder what M&M's has to do with Christmas, other than the pretty colors?
Well, I'd be honored to share that with you.

Christmas M&Ms

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,
Bearing gifts, they say they came.

W is for Worship,
Hallelujah, Praise His Name.

So as you eat these candies,
Or share them with a friend.
Remember the meaning of Christmas,
It's a Love story that never ends.

I will be back to continue my normal (non-series) posting, but wanted to take the time now to say:

May you all have a blessed Christmas...and remember the REAL Reason for the Season!

Thank you for stopping by, and have a GREAT day! :)


  1. I love that poem! I have never heard that before. With little ones at home it is really important to me to have my girls understand the REAL "Reason for the Season." I will be sharing this for sure. Great post!
