What Do Candy Canes Symbolize in Christmas?
The first known ‘sugar stick’ was seen at an exhibition in Massachusetts, USA, in 1837. They began as plain white sugar sticks, with red stripes added a few years later. It is not until 1866 that they are referred to as ‘candy canes,’ and it is not until 1874 that they are linked to Christmas. They were initially described as having a ‘sugar’ flavor. However, we’ve come to expect them to be flavored with wintergreen or peppermint.
Bob McCormack, a Georgia native, began crafting canes for his friends and family in the 1920s. They grew in popularity, and he decided to start his own company, Bob’s Candies. Gregory Harding Keller, Bob McCormack’s brother-in-law, and a Catholic priest devised the ‘Keller Machine,’ which automatically turned straight candy sticks into curved sugar canes! Farley and Sathers bought Bob’s Candies in 2005, but they still create candy canes!
In 1670, a German choirmaster was concerned about the youngsters sitting quietly throughout the long Christmas nativity service. So, to keep them calm, he gave them something to eat! He fashioned them into a ‘J’ shape, resembling a shepherd’s crook, to tell them of the shepherds who wanted to glimpse Jesus at the first Christmas.
The portions of the canes are sometimes given different Christian significance. The letter ‘J’ can also stand for Jesus. The white of the cane can signify Jesus Christ’s purity, while the red stripes reflect the blood he shed on the cross. The peppermint flavor could be a reference to the biblical hyssop plant, which was used for purification. Candy Canes, on the other hand, were given all of these connotations after they became famous.
