The Nutcracker used to be a Christmas tradition when I was young. I'd usually see a performance of it somewhere each year, whether it be a local production, or a big to-do with the San Francisco Ballet Company.
It has been years since I have seen the fantastical Christmas ballet. And I think it is about time to return to that tradition. If not this year (the time is flying past so fast already! Christmas is less than 10 days away!!) then perhaps I'll try for next year. For now, I'll pay homage to it, and the happy memories I have of watching it with my mom, on my happy blog!
