Advent Day 11- Candy Cane Day

Advent Day 11-

"Today is Candy Cane Day!  You may have a candy cane at breakfast, a candy cane at lunch, and we'll have a special candy cane dessert after dinner while we read The Legend of the Candy Cane."

notes-  1)  I obviously need to improve my photography skills.
           2)  Chloe refused to get in the picture
           3)  I gave each of the kids candy cane chapstick...and if you can still find some, it is lovely!
           4)  The Legend of the Candy Cane tells of the significance of the candy cane in story form.
                 J- stands for Jesus
                 or flip the cane and it looks like a Shepherd staff..he is the Good Shepherd
                 Isaiah says by his strips we are healed--- the candy cane is striped, Jesus was whipped and crucified for our transgressions
                 The red stands for the blood he shed for us
                  The white reminds us he rose again and paid for our sins and when we accept his payment on our behalf he washes our sins away and sees us white as snow

The dessert- a candy cane trifle-

It was really easy, pretty and yummy.  Recipe courtesty of The Scrap Shoppe.  And might I add I had not tried these candy cane Hershey's Kisses prior- but they are quite nice...even have teeny bits of candy cane inside....Christmas Happiness.
