I decided to investigate the history of the candy cane today. “Why?” you may ask… Well because for some reason Ben has been has been obsessed with them for the last few days so I figured I would look it up on wikipedia. He keeps asking me “Momma, what is a candy cane?” He made a beaded one at school the other day (so cute to hang on the tree) and… OH! they are made of candy, one of Ben’s favorite things EVER, so that probably explains the current excitement about them. Here’s the history if you want to know too.
