I had to make some changes to the text in the picture, thanks to the sharp eyes of a fellow deviant (really thanks!) ^.^ I know you can find the actual write up for this story easily on the internet, but I'll put it below anyway, alright? So you don't have to waste those microseconds to get into google and search for it~
Also, some versions of the story said the candymaker was from Indiana. Some don't. Wish we knew the name of the candymaker too XD All the little details can't really be 'proven' as such (lack of leads n stuff)... but that doesn't make the concept any less meaningful or real IMO. Enjoy~!
I've been happily busy these past few days but managed to squeeze in some time this evening to doodle Christmas piccage~
This one's for all of you guys~ May your Christmas be a blessed one as you share the joy with friends and family & remember the precious gift we've recieved, of the birth, death and ressurection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ~
Merry Christmas, dears!
Legend of the Candy Cane
Many years ago, a candy maker wanted to make a candy at Christmas time
that would serve as a witness to his Christian faith.
He wanted to incorporate several symbols for the birth, ministry
and death of Jesus. He began with a stick of pure white hard candy;
white to symbolize the Virgin Birth and the sinless nature of Jesus;
hard to symbolize the solid rock, the foundation of the Church;
firmness to represent the promise of God.
The candymaker made the candy in the form of a "J"
to represent the name of Jesus, who came to earth as our Savior.
He thought it could also represent the staff of the Good Shepherd,
with which he reached down into the ditches of the world to lift out
the fallen lambs who, like all sheep, have gone astray.
Thinking that the candy was somewhat plain, the candymaker
stained it with red stripes. He used three small stripes
to show the stripes of the scourging Jesus received,
by which we are healed. The large red stripe was for the
blood shed by Christ on the cross so that we could have the
promise of eternal life.
Unfortunately, the candy became known
as a candy cane - a meaningless decoration seen at Christmas time.
But the true meaning is still there for those who have
eyes to see and ears to hear.
