25 Days of Christmas Ideas
See the Nutcracker Ballet.
If have a production of this magical holiday event near you, try to get out to see it live.
If you aren't able to attend a live performance, the next best thing is to watch the George Balanchine Nutcracker on DVD.
Watch while muching an assortment of sweet and salty nuts, including good old-fashioned nuts in their shells (that need opened with a nutcracker of some sort).
