Just the Candy Cane Facts, Ma'am

Though Elvis beseeched Santa, "Don't fill my sock with candy," it doesn't seem like such a bad idea.  And while we're on the subject, did you know...

The original candy cane had a shape different then the modern day design.
It was straight, all white, and hard.

The first candy cane was made over 350 years ago.

The first historical reference in America to the candy cane dates back to 1847.
A German immigrant from Wooster, Ohio decorated his Christmas tree with candy canes.

The red and white striped candy canes were first made around 1900.

Nearly 2 billion candy canes will be sold in the four weeks before Christmas and Hanukkah.
