Nutcracker Christmas Ornaments
The carving of the nutcracker figurines started out as a cottage industry in rural
Germany in the 1400's. Originally they were carvings of soldiers, knights, or kings.
The figurine had a large mouth that could be opened by a lever in its back. The big
toothed mouth was then used to crack a nut. Today nutcrackers are used for decoration,
especially at Christmas time.
The Merry Christmas Shoppe in Merrickville carries a large selection of Nutcrackers
from 6 inches to 5 feet tall:
