Today is Candy Cane Day at the Advent blog, here! Get plenty of candy canes, pass them around, and learn of their symbolism.
You can start reading some Christmas Thoughts, the candy cane story at the bottom of the page; consider printing out this poem, attach to candy canes and pass them out at random.
Add the candy canes into your Christmas arrangements, make a candy cane wreath, put a bowl of candy canes by the door. Think of the symbolic meaning each time you see a candy cane made especially for Christmas time, take a few minutes to discuss the themes that candy canes represent: The Good Shepherd’s staff, purity, salvation.
Sing “O Come All Ye Faithful”
The Jesse tree ornament is … a cane!
