Today I drew a Christmas candy cane in colored pencils. I was only using 2 colored pencils of red and white. A traditional red and white candy cane. It seems imperfect without some candy canes on Christmas decor. It can be used to dress up your Christmas tree, as Christmas souvenirs or simply as refreshments for kids and adults.

Candy candy often associated with Christmas and it has a story behind it.

Legend has it that in 1670, the cane shaped candy became historical when a choirmaster at the Cologne Cathedral in Germany who bent the candy sticks into canes to appear as shepherd’s hooks. The all-white candy canes were given out to the children which now commonly presented in white with red stripes.
