Here's a short little riddle.

You hang it on your tree. 
You can stir it in your tea. 
If you hap keep it handy, 
You can give it to your dame. 
Oh, it's a little ___________


Two words fill the blank ending in a rhyme. Happy Holidays, everyone!

Just a guess but I think it might be

Candy Cane


It is an item often associated with Christmas and used in all the ways described in the poem.

Well, I respect and props for earlier two answers, but here is mine

Sugar/Cane Candy, as rhyme tag is prominent!

  • $\begingroup$ Very interesting! I didn't expect this answer. I can see what you mean. My intention though was that the last two words rhyme with "Handy" and "Dame" finishing in "Candy cane." Very creative though! +1 $\endgroup$ – Hawkeye Nov 3 '17 at 14:22
