Epiphany Chalk

In some countries it is traditional to bless houses at Epiphanytide with blessed chalk. There is some of this chalk at the back of church for you to take away. The inscription for you to write up above your door is:

20+C+M+B+12

CMB stands for "Christus Mansionem Benedicat" - or alternatively, Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar.
