By Eliza

Nutcrackers are such a fun part of the Christmas season. They make for some great decorating, that's for sure. The nutcracker figures you're used to seeing originated in Germany and carving them was considered a trade industry. Nowadays, nutcrackers aren't so much used to shell nuts as they are to decorate for Christmas. No matter your heritage or personal style preferences, you're sure to find that one of the nutcrackers on this list belongs in your house.
