The Meaning of the Candy Cane
Many years ago, a candy maker wanted to make a candy that symbolized the true meaning of Christmas - Jesus.
The hardy 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.
*The next time your licking you red & white striped peppermint candy, turn it upside down and take a moment to thank Jesus for all he's done*
