Thanksgiving Blessing Mix Poem

 

Bugles

Shaped like a cornucopia or Horn of Plenty, a symbol of our nation’s abundance.

Pretzels

Arms folded in prayer, a freedom sought by those who founded our country.

Candy Corn

Sacrifices of the Pilgrims’ first winter. Food was so scarce that settlers survived on just a few kernels of corn a day.

Nuts or Seeds

The promise of a future harvest if seeds are planted and tended with care.

Dried Fruits

The bountiful fruits of the earth, gathered at harvest time.

M&Ms

Memories of those who came before us to guide us to a blessed future.

Hershey’s Kiss

The love of family and friends that sweetens our lives.
