Nuttiest of the Nutcrackers

Nutcrackers! E.T.A. Hoffman started it, Tchaikovsky made it popular, and now these decorative nut-crunching critters are a mainstream Christmas tradition. Thing is, their festive popularity has expanded their market, so you can find an appropriate nutcracker for any occasion, whether you're going to sea, ordering pizza, reading Shakespeare, printing something, getting a divorce, having a barbeque, electing a president, or invading a terrorism-sponsoring country. Hey, might as well pick one up for the next time you forget to look both ways on your way to the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum. They also help relieve frustration, be it caused by popular culture, illiteracy, or just good ol' holiday stress.
