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.
