The History of the Candy Cane

The Candy Cane (familiar to us all) has a number of colorful stories about it's origin.  Many of them are Christian in nature and offer a message of hope to all.

Version A

Many years ago, a candy maker wanted to make a candy that would symbolize the true meaning of Christmas - Jesus.

The hard candy was shaped like a "J" to represent that Jesus is our rock of all ages. The candy was made of white to stand for the pureness of Jesus. The red represents the blood that Jesus shed to save us from our sins.

So the next time you see a candy cane take a minute to remember the real meaning of Christmas.
