Legend Of The Candy Cane – FREE Printables

Though it is just a legend and the Snopes website tells us a more detailed history of the Candy cane I still love this story and the idea of creating party favors and classmate gifts with the free printables below.

Legend Of The Candy Cane

A candy maker 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 promises of God.

The candy maker made the candy in the form of a *J* to represent the
precious name of Jesus, who came to earth as our savior. It also
represents 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.

Thinking that the candy was somewhat plain, the candy maker stained it
with red stripes. He used the tree 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 Jesus on the Cross so that we could have the
promise of eternal life, if only we put our faith and trust in Him.

Unfortunately, the candy became known as a Candy cane – a
meaningless decoration seen at Christmas time. But the meaning is still
there for those who “have eyes to see and ears to hear”.
