Christmas Blessings Snack Mix

Every ingredient in this mix is symbolic:
Bugles remind us the joyful message of the Heavenly Host,
announcing peace on earth, good will to men.
Pretzels are the symbol of a mother’s loving arms; as Mary wrapped
her Son in swaddling clothes and laid him in the manger.
Red Hots symbolize the holly berries which represent the
shed blood of Jesus, who came to save us.
Peanuts are the symbol for planting seeds for peace on earth like
the angels sang.
M & Ms symbolize memories of family and friends who have
enriched our lives.

“He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6
