M&M Nativity Legend Visiting Teaching Gifts

One of my good friends in Washington shared this Nativity Legend with our Primary last Christmas and I tucked it away in my Christmas file knowing that it would make a wonderful visiting teaching gift during the Holidays. Just a jelly jar filled with Christmas M&Ms in cello and lots of curling ribbon.

Here's the Nativity Legend:

"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 oh so bright,
The "M" is for the Manger, where baby Jesus slept that night.
The "3" is for the wise men bearing gifts, with haste they came,
"W" is for Worship, an angelic choir sang praises to His name.
So as you eat these candies, or share them with a friend,
Remember the true Spirit of Christmas and never let it end."

Merry Christmas, y'all!

This is 'SWEET' any which way you look at it. would have thought your oldest and my youngest could get along, make a sweet couple, but according to our Christmas letters that JB has come between them.
