The Legend of the Upside Down Candy Cane

There are many stories surrounding the candy cane. Some say a choir director created a plain white one in the shape of a shepherd’s hook to keep the kids quiet during the church service at Christmas.

Others say a candy maker made the first candy cane with stripes to tell other’s about Jesus and His sacrifice on the cross. Have you read this version of the candy cane story?

Whatever the real story is, the candy cane is a great way to remind us about Jesus:

1. The “J” is for Jesus

2. The stripes remind us of His blood shed for our sins, and

3. The white shows how we are made white as snow.

Upside down candy canes help us share the good news about Jesus. Are you holding yours the right way?
