Candy Canes

A boy looking at candy canes in a store window on a promotional Christmas card from the early 1900s. The origins of the candy cane are believed to be German. Around 1670, it is said that the choirmaster at the Cologne Cathedral handed out sugar sticks to keep the children in the choir quiet during long Christmas services. The hook in the candy represents the shepherds’ staff. William B Steenberge/Sunshine Pub.Co.Phila photo
