Let it sink in a bit.
No fooling; I love nutcrackers. I don't know why. Maybe it is the way they combine militaristic imagery with a lack of belligerence. Maybe it is the insane look on their faces with the giant toothy smiles. Maybe it is a dim memory of my childhood or a racial memory. Whatever the reason, I love nutcrackers. At least around Christmas time I do.
I saw this particular nutcracker for sale at Christmastown BG and then looked it up online and here it is. A wizard, in purple, with an owl. That is awesome, that is.
This may be the greatest nutcracker of all time, and I am saying this full in the knowledge that there exists an Elvis nutcracker that I have seen with my own eyes.
Keep your yule log lit.
