The Legend of the Candy Cane goes something like this: A candy-maker asked, "What kind of candy would be the ideal gift for the King of Kings?" Not just any candy would do. It had to be firm, because his Church is built on a rock. It had to be in the shape of a shepherds hook, because "The Lord is my Shepherd". The "J" shape also stands for the name "Jesus". White stripes would symbolize his virgin birth and sinless nature, while the three thin red stripes would symbolize his scourging. The one large red stripe would symbolize his blood poured out on the cross in payment for our sins. While the Legend of the Candy Cane is probably fictional, it nevertheless serves as a great story to teach the faith by means of a not-so-simple piece of candy. This Christmas ornament features a candy cane made of claydough and decorated with a red ribbon and holly leaves. Looks great as a Christmas tree ornament, or hanging on a Christmas wreath.
