The Legend of the Candy Cane
A humble man wished to use his candy making art
to make a Christmas gift for Christ
that came straight from his heart.
First he shaped the candy into a shepherd’s staff, a “J”
to stand for the name of Jesus,
who was born on Christmas Day.
He used white stripes to symbolize Jesus’ virgin birth,
and His sinlessness and purity
during His time on earth.
Finally, he colored the candy with stripes made out of red,
to represent the scourging
and the blood that Jesus shed.
He had created the Candy Cane, to remind us during this season
that Christmas is a sweet gift of love
and Jesus is the reason.
