Did you know?

Candy canes used to be totally white! In the late 19th century, Christmas cards and advertisements depicted candy canes that were plain white. At the turn of the century red stripes appeared, seemingly out of nowhere. Most agree that because they were used as much for decor as for eating, it makes sense someone would think to add a dash of festive color.
