Candy Canes are a stick of striped, hard candy bent into a hook at one end. They have been associated with Christmas for over three centuries. Legend attributes the origins of the candy cane to the choirmaster of cologne Cathedral in the 1670’s. Bothered by the noise of children attending the church’s nativity scene, he had candies made up in the shape of a shepherd’s crook and gave them to the young children to encourage them to be quiet. The shape of the cane soon led to them being hung from German Christmas trees, where sweets were a common decoration. Select this link to view our Santas Elves and Children's Santa Claus Costume.
The candy cane to many is a delicious Christmas treat. Centuries ago, a simple candy maker needed to create a perfect gift for the King. The candy was shaped into an upside down “J” in order to represent the Good Shepherd’s staff. However, the candy maker wanted it to mean more. He added white and red stripes. The white represented the birth of Christ and the red would stand for the blood Jesus shed. The candy maker knew this would be the most perfect gift the King had ever received.

Santa has many helpers, called Elves. They live with him and Mrs. Claus at the North Pole and work all year long to help Santa get ready for his big night. Santa’s Elves wear their favorite costume that includes red and green outfits with striped socks. Their shoes curl up at the toes and their hats are similar to Santa’s but the pointed top stands up and they have bells on the toes of their shoes and the end of their hat. These elves help Santa by checking the toys and gift wrapping them. They also pack all of the toys and goodies into his toy bag.
There are elves assigned to sort all the mail and print all the emails that come into the North Pole all year long so that Santa can keep his list up to date. There are elves who take care of Santa’s sleigh and feed and care for Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Donner, Blitzen, Cupid, Comet, and Rudolph. They polish all the reindeer sleigh bells and make sure that every child will hear them ring on Christmas Eve. While Santa is making his rounds on Christmas Eve some of the elves keep Mrs. Claus company. They make lots of hot chocolate and play games until Santa comes home. Each year Santa assigns certain elves to keep track of who has been naughty and who has been nice. This is the biggest job of all and takes a lot of time and patience.
