A grand tradition for many families today is going to the theatre to see the production of the Nutcracker Ballet. The production began in 1892 in St. Petersburg, Russia and traveled to North America. It is the story of two young children who were given a nutcracker on Christmas Eve that came to life that night and took them on a crazy adventure to find the Sugar Plum Princess. Although made in the Victorian Era times, it didn’t gain popularity until the 1960s. However it is still a treasured Christmas tradition.
