Among all Christmas decoration, nutcrackers are certainly the most purchased items. The original design presents a sinister-looking soldier or king standing properly to attention and proudly showing off his snow-white teeth. It was on purpose to give nutcrackers a frightful appearance, as they were often caricaturing important leaders of politics and society.Traditionally used during Christmas time, nutcrackers are still popular to be handed on as gift from one generation to another.
