According to German folklore - nutcrackers were given as keepsakes to bring good luck to your family and protect your home. 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."
"Don't be afraid
my beard is long
my head is large
my look is grim but that matters not
I won't bite you
In spite of my big mouth and grim appearance
I look with my heart for your happiness."
