Well, the answer turns out to be quite surprising. The story dated back to as early as 1670s. A choirmaster wished to subdue the noise created by his church children during Christmas eve. He thought of giving the children some candies in the hope of persuading them to remain quiet. However, he needed a reason to justify giving candies to the children. Brilliantly, he thought of adding a crook to the candy stick and use it as a way to remind the children of the shepherds who paid their visit to infant Jesus. That was how the origin of candy cane was born.
