Fun Facts about Candy Canes..

Found this info. online and wanted to share it. Kind of interesting.

For 200 years, the candy cane came only in one color — white
National Candy Cane Day is celebrated December 26th in the United States
The world's largest candy cane was created by Paul Ghinelli and measured 58 feet 2 1/4 inches
Each year 1.76 billion candy canes are made — enough to stretch from Santa Clause, IN to North Pole, AK and back again 32 times

Candy Canes

Those facts are making me hungry! I wonder if you could possible eat that candy cane of 58 feet and 2 1/4 inches!

Anyway, thanks for the facts and have a Merry Christmas!

I always hang a few candy canes in my tree but here in Belgium nobody knows it is part of the Christmas traditions so I always get surprised reactions from people when they see my tree !
