Have you ever wondered why stockings are hung by the chimney with care? Or who created the candy cane?
The first known candy cane was made in 1670 by a German choirmaster to help children endure lengthy nativity services.
They were white and modelled after shepherds’ canes.
The candy cane made its way to America in 1847, when a German immigrant decorated the tree in his Ohio home with the iconic candy.
