A Skittle Nativity
Purple - Majesty born in a lowly stable on that cold, cold night
Luke 2:7 And she brought forth her Firstborn Son and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes, and laid Him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
Orange – The Glory of the Lord shining like fire
Luke 2:8-14 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the Angel of the Lord came upon them, and the Glory of the Lord shown round about them; and they were sore afraid. And the Angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; You shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the Angel a multitude of the Heavenly Host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
Green - The shepherds who came from the fields to see the newborn Lamb
Luke 2:15-20 And it came to pass, as the Angels were gone away from them into Heaven, the Shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord has made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this Child. And all they who heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.
Yellow - The bright star hanging in the eastern sky guiding the Magi to the Child
Matthew 2:9-12 When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, til it came and stood over where the young Child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. And when they were come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His Mother, and fell down, and worshipped Him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto Him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.
Red - The blood that Jesus freely gave for our sins
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His Only Begotten Son that whosoever shall believe on Him shall not perish, but have Everlasting Life.

I needed something to attach to packs of Skittles so I came up with the above. I will attach this to individual packs of the Skittles to use as stocking stuffers and little goodies for children. I hope you like it feel free to use it if you want to.
