CANDY CANES

According to folklore, in 1670, in Cologne, Germany, the choirmaster at Cologne Cathedral, wishing to remedy the noise caused by children in his church during the Living Crèche tradition of Christmas Eve, asked a local candy maker for some sweet sticks for them.

In order to justify the practice of giving candy to children during worship services, he asked the candy maker to add a crook to the top of each stick, which would help children remember the shepherds who visited the infant Jesus.

In addition, he used the white color of the converted sticks to teach children about the Christian belief in the sinless life of Jesus. From Germany, candy canes spread to other parts of Europe, where they were handed out during plays reenacting the Nativity.

As such, according to this legend, the candy cane became associated with Christmastide.

CANDY AT THE FOREFRONT

The level to which election cycle process has dropped to is totally unbelievable.

From ‘Lyin’ Ted, to sweaty and thirsty Marco, to comparing size of certain anatomy areas, to insults about wives, to face tans and small hands, to declining endorsements and then caving in …

we’ve seen the complete gamut of low level thoughts and behavior from ‘future leaders’.

It’s been boom season for late night comedians.

Here’s a cool, funny example.

Enjoy!
