    Candy Cane Origin

    A candy maker in Indiana wanted to make a candy that would be a witness to Christ. First of all, he used a hard candy because Christ is the rock of ages. (1 Cor. 10:4) This hard candy was shaped so that it would resemble a “J” for Jesus or, turned upside down, a shepherd’s staff. (1 Pt. 5:4) He made it white to represent the purity of Christ. (2 Cor. 5:21) Finally a red stripe was added to represent the blood Christ shed for the sins of the world. (Eph. 1:7) The stripes can also symbolize pain inflicted upon Jesus before his death on the cross and a bold stripe to represent the blood he shed for mankind. The three stripes can also represent the power and presence of the Trinity (the Father, Son and Holy Spirit).Sometimes a green stripe is added as a reminder that Jesus is a gift from God. The smell and taste of peppermint relate to the herb hyssop. Psalm 51:7 states,"Purge me with hyssop and I shall be clean, wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow." The candy cane is meant to be shared --broken into pieces for all to share. That reminds us of Jesus' words, "This is my body which is broken for you" (1 Cor. 11:24).

    **Disclaimer: No this is not preaching. Just found it interesting and thought I would share.**
