Nutcrackers in Alabama??? :shock:

I would have never expected that! 100-200km south of where I live such wooden figurines are an ancient tradition, so I am very familiar with it... but how this came to Alabama?

Life is a strange thing, indeed.

Thanks for sharing,
Th.

A nice collection!

Nutcrackers are quite popular here in the States, and have been for a long time. It wouldn't surprise me to find a good number of the ones made in Germany find their way over to this side of the pond. I know that I did a small part of that - bringing one or two back with me.

My wife has been fascinated with them since childhood. She now can afford to collect them and gets one or two every Christmas season. There are 16 in her collection now.

Thank you Harriet. I'll post more later.
