All wrapped up in Christmas

This is a doll, but also a practical device for cracking nuts.The nutcracker represents more than a toy or a kitchen tool. According to German folklore, nutcrackers are given as keepsakes to bring good luck to your family and protect your home. The legend says that a nutcracker represents power and strength and serves like a trusty watch dog guarding your family from evil spirits and danger. The nutcracker bares its teeth to the evil spirits and serves as the traditional messenger of good luck and goodwill.
