Ah, the beloved Nutcracker, one of my very favourite Christmas traditions. Old German folklore says that the nutcracker brings good luck and protection over your home from evil spirits. They bare their teeth to ward off the evil like a “trusty watch dog” some might say. Sometimes people in the Victorian Era might have kept an unusual or silly nutcracker to spark fun and comedic conversations with guests. So next time you serve a Christmas Dinner, make sure to include some peanuts or walnuts for that hungry nutcracker!
