THUR 12/1 Virtual Program: Nutcrackers – A Colorful History

Monday, November 28th, 2022

Thursday, December 1 @ 11:00AM – 12:00PM on Zoom

You may never have given those funny painted statues much thought but the history of nutcrackers involves the development of tools from the Stone Age to the Industrial Age. Their story encompasses the political changes of Communist-era Germany, a Russian ballet and American G.I.s. These are all elements in the history of the charming, colorful creations we enjoy today. Our look at nutcrackers will include a nod to other traditional Christmas decorations such as pyramids and ‘smokers’ that have developed along with them.
