The Legend of the Candy Cane

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

The hard candy was shaped like a "J" to represent Jesus' name.  The color white stands for the pureness of Jesus.  The color red represents the blood Jesus shed for us.

Next time you see a candy cane, remember what it represents.  I will be so much more willing to let my kids graciously help themselves to a candy cane just as long as when I see them with one they understand the meaning behind it.
