I Want Candy
There's one thing missing from my Christmas tree this year - Candy Canes! Hanging candy canes on your Christmas tree seems to be an American/Canadian tradition, not one practiced here in the UK. For years, I've searched high and low on these shores for those Christmas boxes of candy canes, and I just can't get them anywhere. What I miss most about them are the childhood memories. Every North American child looks forward to eating candy canes off his/her tree, sneaking one when mom and dad aren't watching. I miss having those little candy canes on my tree. My Christmas tree just doesn't look the same without candy canes on him, especially when I'm sat on the sofa biting my nails with a craving for sweets.
