Happy Birthday Jesus Candy Cane Tradition Glass Ornament
$8.99
Tradition Of The Candy Cane
The candy cane begins with a stick of white candy. The white symbolizes the purity of the Christmas season. Its hard consistency represents the Solid Rock, the foundation of the Church and the firmness of the promises of God. The candy is formed into a "J" to represent the precious name of Jesus. It can also represent the staff of the Good Shepherd with which He reaches the lambs who have gone astray. One large red stripe is for the blood shed by Christ on the cross, so that we may have eternal life.

Bring this tradition home today with this Bronner's exclusive ornament! With a stunning red satin finish, this charming ornament has the tradition of the candy cane printed in white along the back of the ornament and "Happy Birthday JESUS" across the front. Remember the reason for the season and give this wonderful ornament to all your friends and family this year. This unique ornament is 3" tall and crafted of glass from Hungary.
