Summary
Christmas is over. As of 6am this morning, open season is declared on all Candy Canes still hanging from Christmas Trees.

Nobody knows for sure when we started to place candy canes on Christmas trees. The first recorded use of candy canes in association with Christmas was in 1847, by a German-Swedish immigrant in Indiana, who used them to decorate a Christmas tree for children in his school.

However, it is not clear if the use of candy canes on Christmas trees was a widespread practice at that time. The association of candy canes with Christmas became more popular in the 20th century.
