Where do you live?

It's just a variant of the common orb weaver. Harmless.

I think if I saw that thing on my person, I would come very close to death. Why is it yellow with candy cane legs.

looks to be a variation of Argiope aurantia.

I saw these and other orb weavers when I was a kid.

SouthWestern Ontario has quite the assortment of creepy crawly things.

Because the colors scare predators away and attract it's prey. There was one right here earlier and I can assure you they are completely harmle...
