      We have a special section in the house each year decorated with just a nutcracker theme. My wife has called it our "nutcracker suite" for several years. There are several different types and styles of nutcrackers as well as an animated electric minitiature theatre which plays songs and rotates different scenes from "The Nutcracker". We are always adding to this section and I would love to purchase a few life size nutcrackers to go along with it. Nice lens!

      We love Nutcrackers and I always thought it would be fun to have two large ones at our front doors. Maybe one day.
