By the way?
Originally, the German miners made the nutcrackers and other toys and figurines,
during the free time that the long, cold winter months provided.
In time however, the surface mines were depleted and the miners found themselves unemployed.
It was then that the hobby became a main source of income.
There is some debate regarding how or why miners began to use the nutcrackers as characters.
Some say it is because they dreamed of a life of excitement,
where they could be soldiers in the Huguenot War and in the Thirty Years War.
Other argument... It is believed that the working class miners began to create nutcrackers
in the images of those they wanted to poke the most fun at,
or humiliate in effigy by making them perform menial tasks, like shelling nuts.
Regardless of the rationale behind the nutcrackers gaining characters,
they have become to us a whimsical Christmas decoration, enjoyed by all.
