Aside from presents, kids love getting sweets during the holiday — eggnog, gingerbread cookies, pumpkin spiced dessert, hot cocoa with marshmallows. One particular sweets during Christmas that should never be forgotten are candy canes. But how did they become such a staple treat during the Yuletide season?
There are no confirmed stories about the origins of candy canes. But one legend says a choirmaster made “sugar sticks” to the children to keep them behaved during Christmas sermons. He also shaped them into an inverted J shape to look like a shepherd’s staff. Apparently, it became a hit and the rest is history.
Fast forward to modern times and they’re no longer strictly for eating. Of course, kids still get them as stocking stuffing or as a treat after Christmas lunch. But, they are also used as decorations for the Yuletide season; as tree ornaments, little trinkets, or giant figurines.
This 4-foot hanging candy cane figurine is made of fiberglass and attached to a wall mount. It’s great for storefront doors, outdoor decorations, and even indoor decorations. It comes in two different colours: white with small red stripes or red with white red stripes.
