Candy


The Legend Of The Candy Cane


A Candymaker in Indiana wanted to make a candy that would be a witness, so he made the Christmas Candy Cane.  He incorporated several symbols for the birth, ministry, and death of Jesus Christ.

He began with a stick of pure white, hard candy.  White to symbolize the Virgin Birth and the sinless nature of Jesus, and hard to symbolize the Solid Rock, the foundation of the Church, and firmness of the promise of God.

Candy

The candymaker made the candy in the form of a "J" to represent the precious name of Jesus, who came to earth as our Savior.  It could also represent the staff of the "Good Shepherd," with which He reaches down into the ditches of the world to lift out the fallen lambs who, like all sheep, have gone astray.

Candy

Thinking that the candy was somewhat plain, the candymaker stained it with red stripes.  He used three small stripes to show the stripes of the scourging Jesus received by which we are healed.  The large red stripe was for the blood shed by Christ on the cross so that we couldhave the promise of eternal life.
