When is it the time to get into the Christmas spirit? The moment you saw the decorative nutcrackers displayed at your grandparents’ house. Talking about its history, woodcarvers began creating nutcrackers that were both functional and visually interesting by the 15th century. These figures, known as Nussknacker in German, resembled animals and humans.
Nutcrackers began to resemble human figures by the mid-nineteenth century. Wilhelm Fuchtner, a German woodworker, was the first to commercially produce and sell nutcrackers around 1865. His design was inspired by a character from Heinrich Hoffmann’s well-known children’s book King Nutcracker and Poor Reinhold. Tchaikovsky’s famous ballet, The Nutcracker, premiered in 1892. Because the ballet takes place on Christmas Eve (and the hero is a living nutcracker), the products quickly became associated with holiday decor.
