Christmas crown nutcrackers are decorative figures made to resemble toy soldiers. The Christmas nutcrackers are mostly painted in bright colors which are rather warm and inviting colors over this holiday season. In the German tradition, the dolls are a symbol of good luck, scaring away bad spirits. However, most of the dolls only serve a decorative function. They cannot be used to crack nuts.
