ITEM #: 36083 Holly Candy Cane Ornament by Old World Christmas
From Old World Christmas. In 17th century England people were not allowed to celebrate Christmas. So a candy-maker invented the candy cane. Shaped like a shepherd’s crook to symbolize Jesus, it has three thin stripes to represent the Trinity, and a larger stripe to represent the life Jesus gave up for us. But to most of us, this gorgeous candy cane ornament reminds us of sweet treats during the festive season, while the holly reminds us to give for the Christmas season.
