Harvest Blessing Mix

Harvest Blessing Mix

Bugles - represents a cornucopia...horn of plenty
Pretzels - represents arms folded in thanks and prayer
Candy Corn - During the first winter, the pilgrims were each allowed 5 kernels of corn per day b/c food was so scarce.
Raisins - Thanksgiving is the celebration of the harvest
Sunflower seeds - Seeds represent the potential of a bountiful harvest for the next season, if they are planted and well tended.
Chocolate chips - What's a mix without chocolate?

This is a re-post from last year, but I've got so much to do I think it's so cute!  It makes great little gifts - put in a baggie with the meaning of the ingredients attached!

  1. I love all the symbolism behind the each component. It means that when I eat handfuls upon handfuls I can rest assured I'm really just doing it to keep the T-Day spirit alive.
