Once upon a time…
a candy maker created the perfect candy to symbolize the true meaning of Christmas.
It was the candy cane.
The white stripes would stand for the purity of Christ and his Virgin birth.
The red stripes would signify the pain and death Jesus endured on our behalf.
The hook shape would also be a reminder to all people of the name Jesus & his role as Good Shepherd.
Christmas Blessings to you!
