inspiration / The Nutcracker

Last night at work, I hosted a Nutcracker book party.  It's one of my favorite Christmas stories - I can remember pouring over a book that was filled with photographs from the ballet performance when I was little and its still one of my favorite classical pieces to listen to this time of year.  These images all remind me of the Nutcracker story in some way - the mouse king's crown, snowflakes, and even the fact that the ballet is based on a book by E.T.A Hoffman written in 1816:

Do you have any favorite holiday stories you return to every year?
