The Candy Cane originated in Germany, about 300 years ago, as a white sugar stick.  Legend says that the choirmaster at Cologne Cathedral handed them out to the children to keep them quiet during the Christmas Eve Service.  In order to justify giving the children candy the choirmaster asked that a shepherd’s crook be put at the top of the sticks to remind the children of the shepherds that visited Jesus.  He also used the white color of the sticks to teach them about the sinless life of Jesus.
