The Origin of Traditional German Nutcrackers
Wildly popular across the European Christmas markets, nutcracker dolls represent a piece of German history, originating in the Ore Mountains, otherwise known as Erzgebirge - a low mountain range in the east of Germany in the late 17th century. According to German folklore, Nutcrackers represented a symbol of power and strength, and were gifted as keepsakes to bring a family good luck and to protect their home 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."
