The Candy Cane appears as two crossed white candy canes with green and red stripes.
If a friend sends you a Candy Cane, it will appear at the top of the screen. When you click on it, a Candy Cane will spawn one on the island. A Pygmy will then eat it and you will gain eight Devotion Points. In addition, the player receives three Candy Canes just for participating in the Fishmas Global quest.
