Sometimes the simplest answer is the right one, but as humans we tend to make things difficult for ourselves. Perhaps this is why so many people in the US were shocked to learn that the true function of nutcrackers is to crack nuts. The edition told in more detail Dailymail.

It seems so obvious, and yet it has slipped through the minds of many people who happily enjoy holiday characters every Christmas without thinking about their real purpose.

Figurines, which traditionally resemble toy soldiers in buttoned blazers and top hats, appeared in Germany at the end of the XNUMXth century.

According to German folklore, these are symbols of good luck that scare away evil spirits, but this is only secondary to their main practical purpose.

It is not clear when nutcrackers became associated with Christmas, although it may have been because people started giving dolls as gifts.
