The Candy Cane

Candy canes and Christmas-or Peppermint sticks, as they used to be called. I remember getting these sweet treats as a child from the local "candy" store (where they made homemade candy and still do to this day). One year I made everyone in my family ordaments for the tree, you just hot glue the bottoms of two candy candy canes together and the points where they meet and it forms a heart, add ribbon for a hanger and I personalized them with rubber stamped tag with names on them. Another year, I stamped the legend of the Candy Cane on red card stock and mounted it on white card stock, punched a hole and tied silver cord around a candy cane and attached one to each package. (if you don't have the stamp you could type it on paper or even pretty hand writiing). For those who are unfamiliar with the legend, here is it:
The Legend of the Candy Cane
A candy maker decided to fashion
some candy to honor Jesus
He made hard candy because Christ
is our Rock. White symbolizes
Christ's purity. the red stripes are
for His blood, shed on the cross to save
us. The shape is a sheperd's staff,
for Jesus is the Good Sheperd.
