 I love Nut Crackers.  I have a few that are larger free standing ones.  These are a trio that were my mom's.  I love the short one with the wild hair.  The tradition of Christmas Nutcrackers started in Europe quite early and came to be more the type we know in the 15th & 16th Century.  In German tradition, they are symbols of good luck and protect the home.  These 3 are on the door side of my tree protecting my house.  😀
