I’ve always associated nutcrackers to the famous Ballet, The Nutcracker, as well as Tchaikovsky’s music. Though I know that it has a movable jaw, I never thought that it was made in such a way to crack open nuts! According to the German folklore, these wooden dolls can bring good luck. They are mainly used as decorations during Christmas.
No one really knows who started the idea of creating snow globes even though Erwin Perzy’s grandson claimed that his grandfather first started making Snow globes in Vienna since 1900. However, snow globes have already appeared before 1900. Some thought that it was made as paper weights. But today, we probably wouldn’t want to snow globes as paperweights as it is such a beautiful and fragile item. It can be rather expensive to buy one too. A cheaper and eco-friendly alternative is to make them your own using recycled glass jars, some ornaments, glitter, glue and glycerin.
