What does the Nutcracker have to do with Christmas?

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. A fierce protector, the nutcracker bares its teeth to the evil spirits and serves as the traditional messenger of good luck and goodwill.

In German tradition, the dolls are symbols of good luck, frightening away malevolent spirits. The origin of the Nutcracker, a classic Christmas Story, is a fairy tale ballet in two acts centered on a family's Christmas Eve celebration (story by E.T.A. Hoffmann was set to music by Tchaikovsky).

A German girl dreams of a Nutcracker Prince and his fierce battle against a Mouse King with seven heads. It is Christmas Eve 1830, in the home of a city official, President Stahlbaum. He and his wife and children, Clara and Fritz, welcome their guests to the annual Christmas party.
