Last week I gave you some Christmas Reminders as we look at Christmas decorations to remind us of the Reason for the season. This week I will focus on candy, I LOVE candy, especially at Christmas!
In England, we call candy “sweets”, and I wrote this poem based on a devotional that my friend read at our Christmas ladies’ meeting at Church (Click here for original devotional). I printed this out to give to my grandchildren, my grandson is allergic to nuts so I picked candy that is nut-free. Feel free to copy and share.
A “Sweet” Christmas Poem
The bright Starburst® with a Holy light
On sweet Baby Jesus that special night.
The shepherds left their Canes and flocks to see
The Baby the angels spoke of with such glee.
Turn the cane upside down, it makes a “J”
That stands for Jesus, Who was born for us that day.
The white reminds us He was pure outside and in
And the red stripes for the blood that He shed for our sin.
Those wise men were Smarties®, they traveled to bring
Gold, frankincense, and Myrrh to the newborn King.
The Father was pleased, the Spirit came like a Dove®,
And the Son is Heaven’s gift send down from above.
So eat this candy at Christmas and pause to remember
Jesus our Savior was born in December.

May your Christmas be sweet!!
