Blogshare Post of the Day - Dec. 24th by Tots and Me
It is very important to me to teach the children the true meaning of the Christmas holiday. There are so many traditions surrounding Christmas and I want to make sure the ones we choose to share with our children are meaningful and focused on the birth of Jesus. One tradition I used to love growing up was that my mother would put candy canes on the tree for Christmas morning while we slept. Of course, we thought it was Santa Claus when he brought the presents. Though we don't put up a tree or teach our children about Santa Claus, I still love to give the children real peppermint candy canes. I didn't realize growing up (and I don't think my mother did either) that their is a Legend surrounding the Candy Cane. Though I am sure this is just a story, I love that it focuses on Jesus.

Please stop by Tots and Me to learn of the Legend of the Candy Cane and how we include candy canes in our Christmas Celebration. While you're there enter to win today's giveaway!
