Saint Nicholas Day Blessing of Candy Canes

 

Saint Nicholas Day Blessing of Candy Canes

 

The candy cane is a treat often associated with Saint Nicholas, the patron and protector of children.  Its distinctive shape is attributed to a 17th century German choirmaster, who bent the candy into the form of a shepherd’s staff and gave it to children attending church services.  The crook symbolizes the gentle image of Jesus, the Good Shepherd. As shepherd of his people, a bishop carries a hook-shaped staff called a crosier. Since Saint Nicholas was also a bishop, the candy cane serves as a perfect symbol for this patron and protector of children.
