Last year I picked up a sweet musical nutcracker at an after-Christmas sale. Packed him away and forgot all about him till I opened up a particular box and there he was. I put him on the end table next to a Marine nutcracker my daughter bought me a few Christmases ago.
They did not get along. It's not that I suspected them of dueling at midnight (tho they might have, depending on your belief of hidden nutcracker lives). They just didn't sit well together. Tho' one is a few inches taller than the other, they seemed to constantly be competing for space against each other. Perhaps this visual imbalance was exasperated by the fact they shared the table with my amber compote as well. There was such tension between them that I couldn't even get a half-way decent photo of them, they all came out over exposed and blurry.
I hope everyone is having a blessed Christmas season.
