"In German folklore, where Nutcrackers originated, the Nutcracker will bring good luck to your home and protect your family."
According to the MagicOfNutcrackers website:
"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."
If all that is true, my home is well protected. A couple of days ago I posted a picture of part of my nutcracker collection James Dray said he wanted to see the rest of them. Although this isn't quite ALL of them, this is the music box portion of my collection. They stand in my kitchen window, offering up music on demand.
While on the Nutcracker subject, I'll mention that 25 miles west of Wenatchee in the little (but very well-known) Bavarian-themed town of Leavenworth is an amazing Nutcracker Museum. They have an extensive and historical collection of Nutcrackers of every imaginable kind (and a few more). If you have time, click on the link and peruse their website for all kinds of info on Nutcrackers. In addition to their regular website, they manage a Kids Love Nutcrackers website too! It features lots of info and fun activities for the kids.
I pray that your home is warm and safe and well protected this holiday season and all through the year.
