The following ingredients should be mixed together to make a great mix for the harvest season.  It can be placed in a large container for all guests to enjoy or distributed in individual containers with the following reading attached.  Either way, the guests should be made aware of what each item symbolizes.

 

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:         The 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:       Promise of a future harvest, one we will reap only if seeds are planted and tended with diligence.

 

Dried Fruits:            Harvest gifts from our bountiful land.

 

M & M’s                 Memories of those who came before us to lead us into a blessed future.

 

Hershey’s Kiss:       The love of family and friends that sweetens our lives.
