It is great fun to make Christmas candy as most homemade candy lasts quite a long time, and has the added benefit of being custom made.
Earlier, candy canes were shaped like a shepherd`s crook as a symbol of Jesus Christ as the Good Shepherd. The symbol of the shepherd`s crook is an ancient one, representing the humble shepherds who were first to worship the newborn Christ. The white color of the Christmas candy cane symbolizes the purity and virginity of Mother Mary and the sinless nature of Jesus. The hardness of the candy symbolizes the solid rock, the foundation of churches and the firmness of the promises made by God. The candies are made in a "J" shape to represent the name of Jesus and the shape of the staff of the "Good Shepherd". Candy canes have been around for centuries, but it wasn’t until around 1900s that they were decorated with red stripes and bent into the shape of a cane. In the early 20th century, the three small red stripes and one large red stripe were introduced to represent the stripes of the scourging Jesus and the blood shed by Jesus on the cross.
