Thanksgiving Blessings Mix
Each ingredient in this snack mix symbolizes something associated with the Thanksgiving season.
Cornucopia – or the Horn of Plenty – a symbol of our harvest abundance
Arms folded in prayer … a prayer of Thanksgiving
Corn- food was so scarce that settlers survived on just a few kernels of corn a day
Dried fruits were a harvest gift of our bountiful land
Seeds are a promise of a bounteous harvest for the next season
Sweet memories of those who came before us.
Kisses from the love of family and friends that sweeten our lives.
