[FHCx361] National Candy Cane Day

CANDY CANE DAY IS TODAY AND NOT YESTERDAY FOR SOME REASON!

Before ironically becoming the go-to pseudonym inspiration for porn actresses everywhere, candy canes were meant as a call back to the good shepherds who hung out with Baby Jesus back in the day. Allegedly, they started in Germany like 400 years ago when a choirmaster needed some sort of sugary distraction to get noisy church kids to shut up. Who knew?

This probably isn’t how they did it in 17th-century Cologne, but check out this neat video on how candy canes are made:

 

The candy cane we acquired for today’s celebration broke immediately, as candy canes do. ThenĀ AKĀ found a tiny one at work, plus we thought to use this as an excuse to eat a minty Hershey bar. Yay!
