An Excuse to Eat M & M's

For many Protestant church traditions, the season of Epiphany extends from January 6th until Ash Wednesday. We love the following visual reminder of the season because it involves chocolate!

"As you hold some M & M 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’ll 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, share them with a friend.  Remember the meaning of Christmas through Epiphany, it’s a Love story that never ends."
