But first, a little candy cane history.

Who Invented the Candy Cane?

We all know that candy canes are an iconic symbol of Christmas.

However, very little is known for sure about the origin of candy canes.

We do know, though, that the red and white stripes of candy canes are a modern invention.

One of the more promising theories is that the stripes originated with the candy maker Bob McCormack. His company became the leading peppermint candy cane producer starting in the late 1950s.

No matter where and how candy canes came into existence, I’m so glad they did!

They’ve become one of my favorite symbols of Christmas and are perfect for decorating and gift giving!

As promised, here are two, free printable candy cane poems!

Each poem will print as a 5×7. Choose the poem you’d like to download, and you’ll be taken to the Google Drive link.

Download the link and save file to your computer.

Each file is sized at 5×7, and there are two poems per sheet.

Print at home (I like these poems on glossy photo paper) OR upload and send to your favorite photo processor.

I love walgreens, costco, target, and snapfish.

Cut the tags, punch a hole in the top, and tie to your candy cane! You can also attach these with glue dots or washi tape.

Legend of the Candy Cane Poem

candy cane poem

The legend of the candy cane goes something like this:

Look at a Candy Cane
What do you see?
Stripes that are red
Like the blood shed for me
White for my Savior
Who’s sinless and pure!
“J” is for Jesus My Lord, that’s for sure!
Turn it around
And a staff you will see
Jesus my shepherd
is coming for Me!

These would be perfect for a sunday school class or neighbor gifts.
