Our Drosselmeyer Nutcracker Ornament symbolizes late 17th century Germany, where the nutcracker tradition began. Originally handcrafted out of wood and shaped like soldiers, kings, or other iconic figures, nutcrackers have become a Christmas icon.

Nutcracker Christmas ornaments represent many traditions, from Christmas magic to bravery and courage. As a symbol of good luck and protection, they remind us that anything is possible, no matter how daunting the journey may be, with faith, strength, and determination.

The tradition inspired Tchaikovsky's ballet "The Nutcracker Suite," which continues to be performed worldwide each holiday season. We have Nutcracker ornaments to retell the story. On Christmas day, Clara is presented with an enchanting nutcracker that comes to life as a prince in her dreams. Together they embark on an adventure across a wintery landscape and battle against the Mouse King until they arrive in The Kingdom of Sweets, where Clara meets the beautiful Sugar Plum Fairy.
