Candy canes are everywhere this time of year, bringing everyone holiday cheer.
Candy canes are used as decorations on Christmas trees and make a fabulous stirrer in a cup of peppermint cocoa.
Crush a candy, add it to a little white chocolate, top that to a dollop of dark chocolate and you have a holiday favorite of peppermint bark.
A candy can is a sweet treat both kids and adults adore.
How does this fit into our Twelve Days of Christmas Spirit? That's easy.
Here is the plan:
- Buy candy canes. Doesn't matter whether the big candy canes or the small ones. They cost about a dollar a box. Come on! If you can buy a cup of coffee, you can buy candy canes to give away.
- Take candy canes to mall. Pick a mall, large or small, any mall at all. Malls intimidate you, then go to your local coffee shop. It does not matter where you go, just go!
- Open box or boxes of candy canes.
- Start handing them out! See that harried, last minute shopper, give her a candy cane and wish him a Merry Christmas. See that dad with dragging his kids through the mall looking for gifts for the wife, give him a candy cane and wish him a Happy Holiday. What about your favorite barista? Give him or her a candy cane and say thank you for a great cup of coffee.
Merry Christmas and have fun!
