Really last minute gifts

It's Christmas Eve. You need a gift, a neighbor gave you something, and you HAVE to reciprocate before the next day- it's just the way you roll. Only problem is, everything is closed. Well, except the pharmacy on the corner. They will probably be open after the apocalypse- no time off for the zombie revolution for those poor employees! How can you possibly find something that will look thoughtful and not hopelessly tacky at this stage of the game? Answer: Get yourself to the Walgreens, and buy a package of M&M's. If all they have is the individual sized ones, you can get a pack for each family member.  Tie them up with curly ribbon, and add this tag:
M&M Christmas Story
As you hold these candies in your hand and turn them you will see...
The M becomes a W, an E and then a 3.
They tell the Christmas story, It's one I'm sure you know.
It took place in a stable a long, long time ago.
The E is for the East where the star shone oh so bright,
The M is for the manger where the Baby Jesus slept that night,
The 3 is for the wisemen bearing gifts, they say they came,
W is for worship, halleujah, Praise to his name.
So as you eat these candies, or share them with a friend,
Remember the Spirit of Christmas, and never let it end!
Merry Christmas!

You drop them off on your way home, singing some carols to make it look like you meant to do this all along, and YOU have saved Christmas for another year!
