Anna would place the candy canes around the necks of her dolls and lead them to the edge of the cliff-table where they would jump into a plastic-tub sea.

The candy cane was twisted and bent into a hook with that sharp over-sweetness of the season.

How can a thing be sweet when the workers who pick it suffer so? Is this sweetened hook the best our "Capitol" can offer us to look the other way?

The candy cane, a perfect symbol for a season that should be all about ending poverty in a spirit of fraternity, instead holding no "nutritional value."

The candy cane is the perfect symbol of a rotten core: overly-sweet, hard and twisted.

For the poor to feel that they can join in with this festival of excessive consumption there must be cheap iconic shapes of sugar for all.

"Sure, you are part of this consumption family, I mean, erm, national family. Don't mind the holes in your socks, the cold drafts in winter time or your constant struggle for food. You are one of us, a member of this glorious nation. Pat. Pat. Here, have a candy cane."
