Yesterday Blair from Wild and Precious blogged about how seeing The Nutcracker was a tradition in her family because her sister was always in it.
It got me thinking that maybe we all have our own Nutcracker story.
I've personally cracked a few nuts myself and
I sincerely hope I will never perform in a Nutcracker ever again.
In fact, dancers always joke that when we hear Nutcracker music in the mall we can't help but feel nauseous.
But, to be honest, I have fond memories of seeing the ballet as a little girl and I can't wait to dress up my little girls in their prettiest Christmas dresses and take them to see it also.
Hopefully by then the nausea will have subsided.
So I ask you:
What are your Nutcracker memories?
Were you ever in it?
Did you see it as a young child?
Have you taken your children to see it?
Do you love the fact that the entire ballet is about dessert?
