Day 8: What is your favorite food at Christmas time?
Gingerbread Men/Houses and Candy Canes
I really don’t like eating these as much as I like to play with them. I love building my gingerbread houses and making my little Benjamin and Bradley out of gingerbread. I love eating Candy Canes thought and I love all the flavors they have out now… Smarties Candy Canes are YUMMO!!! Its like your eating Smarties BUT you can suck on the flavor or hours if you want… AWESOME!!! Pure awesomeness. My hubs likes the sours ones they have out now and the boys like the original ones the best.
A little fact about candy canes I found: (cool right)
There is a modern allegorical tradition that reinterprets the candy cane’s shape as a “J”, standing for Jesus Christ or the right side up standing for the shepherds that came to visit baby Jesus. The stripes are said to represent his sacrifice, with the red being blood, and the white being purity. However, no historical information to support any claim that the cane was originally made with this allegory in mind has been produced, so it is regarded as an urban legend…
