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.


Whe're not certain how our Allison Baker's youngest son Tristan became obsessed with them, but they do make for the most dynamic addition to the Christmas Decor.  The Baker family now has 31 Nutcrackers of all shapes and sizes, and the entire family know to send Tristan at least one every year!!    Allison ordered 2 life-sized nutcrackers for him after Christmas last year, and it took until October to receive them!  These special keepsakes light up at night and and play drums/music!  


If the Legend of the Nutcracker holds true, the Baker Home is definitely the safest in the neighborhood!!


Happy Holidays Everyone!
