Originally the carving of nutcrackers was a cottage practice in rural Germany - the practice was a sort of joke played on the soldiers and royals, whose image was being used to do the menial task of cracking nuts. The nutcracker became associated with the holiday season in part due to the seasonal availability of nuts, but mostly became tied to the Christmas imagery through the efforts of writer Alexander Dumas and composer Tchaikovsky, who worked to adapt a classic Christmas story into a very successful ballet, and eventually, into a Christmas tradition in its own right!
