The Symbolism of the Candy Cane

Hey Folks! I’m so sorry that I didn’t get yesterday’s post out! I was helping with a cousin’s wedding and thought that I had it set to publish at a certain time. Obviously, not. So here it finally is. A day late is better than never, right?

Ever look at a candy cane and wonder why they are so… “Christmas-y”? Maybe this poem will help shed some light on why I think that candy canes should be the Christmas candy. It is so super sweet! I know that I will never look at a ordinary candy cane in the same way.

Here’s an idea. Find places to stick candy canes to remind you of the beauty of Christmas. This could include table centerpieces,  on the Christmas tree, in various decorations, or even a miniature candy cane hung on the side of your mug of hot cocoa as you curl up and read a book by the fire (yes, peppermint hot chocolate is sooo good!). And… after Christmas is over, you can eat the left-over ones and remember that Jesus is even sweeter!!
