I am straying from today’s prompt to bring you this nutcracker. Generally, Christmas nutcrackers are made to resemble a toy soldier, and they can be rather plainly decorated or quite ornate.


In German tradition, nutcrackers are symbols of good luck, frightening away evil spirits. My friend has an extensive collection of nutcrackers, and seeing them all together is very impressive!
