Obsessions, I know we all have them, but what I want to talk about now are those Christmas ones! Do you have any Christmas items that you collect each year, that only you can find around the holidays? Well, I do and that’s nutcrackers. I probably have over twenty now and also one huge one by my door outside that lights up, I call him Mr. Nutty.
Let me go back to the beginning and tell you how my nutcracker obsession (or collection as some say) began. About five years ago, one of my friends gave me a nutcracker for Christmas. My first nutcracker and I thought to myself these things are so freaking adorable! As with many collections, I never planned on getting any more but you all know how those things work. I just kept seeing ones I loved and had to have. The more unusual or unique the nutcracker is the better. I love anything and everything nutcracker related and a few years ago I even saw the ballet which was beautiful and amazing. Some people think they are creepy or weird but not me. I could go on and on about how much I love these little wooden things but I’ll stop right here, and maybe you can tell me if there’s anything Christmas that you collect.

even Just posting my pics, and a little video from this years find! Our Favorite 3 are the Viking, The "English Bobby", and the musical one (which we got this year). Although technically we started getting these as gifts for my mum, they have definitely become part of our own tradition. We have NutCracker banners by the tree!
