I wrote the recipe as received. I didn't find bridge mix so I added chocolate covered raisins and peanuts, plus I added some Halloween M and M's. I liked the cinnamon flavor on the popcorn. Next time I might add a little more popcorn and try harder to find bridge mix. For a Christmas mix, I would get reindeer corn (which is red and green) and probably add Christmas M & M's.
