When I read a Christmas book to my children, purchase I want it to be special. I want it to light the minds with wonder and their hearts with hope. That’s what Christmas is all about, pharm isn’t it?
The Legend Of The Candy Cane is one of those books. It has been a family favorite for years. We read it each Christmas season and it never gets old. It’s a tradition now.
Discovering The Legend
The story unfolds as a stranger comes to town and behind covered windows and closed doors begins to transform an abandoned store into a something special. The townspeople are caught up in the mystery of what type of store or business the stranger might be working on. They all had their preferences and wishes.
While the town guesses and wonders, sildenafil a young girl named Lucy knocks on the door and offers to help the stranger with his work. What she learns is far greater than simply the contents of the store. The stranger tells her the legend of the candy cane and asks her to help him share the story with others.
Lucy gladly agrees to share the legend, which is the true story of Christmas. The townspeople come together at the opening of the new store with a new joy in their hearts, all because someone shared the true meaning of Christmas with them.
Sharing The Legend
The Legend Of The Candy Cane is more than a touching story. It is a guide to share Christmas with others. The first time I read this was to a group of children. After the story, the kids were each given two candy canes with a copy of the legend of the candy cane attached to them. One was to keep and the other was to giveaway.
We have made our own candy cane/legend gifts to give out over the years. It is a great way to share the love and story of Christ. You can make your own by using this Legend Of The Candy Cane printable.
Simply print it out. Cut it apart and attach it to a candy cane. It’s a great Christmas treat to pass out. Everyone loves candy canes! Use them for present toppers, co-op gifts, teacher gifts, and gifts for neighbors.

this is something I shared with my son’s kindergarten class(he is now 33) and I find myself about to share it with his 4.5 yr old son’s class as well……. with a candy cane attached…… one for each of his classmates.

I have been looking for a small thing to share with my three and four year old class for about two weeks and this is perfect…. I love the idea for the candy canes and it works perfectly as a “craft” as well.

I have been looking for a simple skit for my 4&5 year olds Sunday School class this year. I believe I have found a winner. Thank you. Ms Chrissy Eastside Baptist Church Plant City Florida
