The candy cane is a wonderful Christmas treat that Santa, and his elves, created many years ago in his North Pole kitchen. It was winter-white and delicious. But, after years of plain white, Santa was ready for a new look. Santa's art contest would determine the design that would be placed on the canes. Everyone in the North Pole village wanted to enter. Whose design would win?
The candy cane, for many years,
was white like winter snow.
But, one year dear old Santa said,
"Plain white has got to go!"
So, open up and start to read
and by the end you'll see
why stripes are put on candy canes
and how it came to be!
