THE LEGEND OF THE CANDY CANE

 
THE LEGEND OF THE CANDY CANE
Legend has it that in 1670, the choirmaster at the Cologne Cathedral handed out sugar sticks among his young singers to keep them quiet during the long Living Creche ceremony. >>>>>> In honor of the occasion, he had the candies bent into shepherds’ crooks. >>>>>>> Legend also has it that in 1847, a German-Swedish immigrant named August Imgard of Wooster, Ohio, decorated a small blue spruce with paper ornaments and candy canes. >>>>>>> In the 1920s, Bob McCormack began making candy canes as special Christmas treats for his children, friends and local shopkeepers in Albany, Georgia. >>>>>> He wanted to invent a candy that was a witness to Christ. >>>>> First of all, he used a hard candy because Christ is the rock of ages. This hard candy was shaped so that it would resemble a "J " for Jesus or, turned upside down, a shepherd 's staff. He made it white to represent the purity of Christ. Finally a red stripe was added to represent the blood Christ shed for the sins of the world, and three thinner red stripes for the stripes He received on our behalf when the Roman soldiers whipped Him. >>>>>> Sometimes a green stripe is added as a reminder that Jesus is a gift from God. >>>> The flavor of the cane is peppermint, which is similar to hyssop. Hyssop is in the mint family and was used in the Old Testament for purification and sacrifice. >>>>> Jesus is the pure Lamb of God, come to be a sacrifice for the sins of the world. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> It was a laborious process--pulling, twisting, cutting and bending the candy by hand. It could only be done on a local scale. >>>>>>> In the 1950s, Bob’s brother-in-law Gregory Keller, a Catholic priest, invented a machine to automate candy cane production. >>>>>>>>> Packaging innovations by the younger McCormacks made it possible to transport the delicate canes on a scale that transformed Bobs Candies, Inc. into the largest producer of candy canes in the world. >>>>>>> Although modern technology has made candy canes accessible and plentiful, they’ve not lost their purity and simplicity as a traditional holiday food and symbol of the humble roots of Christianity. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Tuckahoe1 ... 12-5-09 ...
