M&M's Candy Christmas Poem

One Sunday morning in December the children of Hope United Methodist Church in Canal Winchester, Ohio treated the congregation to their Christmas play, a pre-recorded DVD shown on the big screen. After the show, the children passed out a basket of bagged goodies -- red and green M&M 's with a Christmas poem attached to the candy bags.

While this was the first I had seen the M&M 's Christmas Poem , my research online shows this is a popular idea for the candy and story. With today being Christmas Eve, I thought my readers might enjoy the too.

The introductory picture with this article is of my bag of M&M 's and the M, W, E, and 3 Christmas Story Poem ... Enjoy!


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 "

E is for the East
where the star shone so bright.

M is for the Manger
where the baby Jesus slept at night.

3 is for the Wisemen
bearing gifts with which they came.

W is for Worship
Hallelujah! Praise His name!

Quite an innovative way indeed. There will be great demand for their goodies.

It's nice to see some people remembering why we celebrate Christmas.

I read this on facebook earlier this month from my niece from her church. It is cute.

That is very neat. I have never seen that done with M&Ms before.

This M&M Christmas poem really says a lot and has significance for Christmas.

That is a cute one and a cute way to get the kids involved.

I think this is a classic gift-card poem. Hallmark and M&Ms should buy it!
