Candy Cane

By Lucy Wall

As I was taking down the decorations after Christmas 2013 my Mother-In-Law started to tell me about the Christian symbolism behind the candy cane and I was completely intrigued by what she said. Although I had seen the popular confectionary every year during the Christmas season I had never realised that it had Christian meanings in it's origins. I decided to read up about it online and discovered that there are some mixed reviews as to the meanings behind the candy cane.
