The Nutcracker


My mother adores the theater so for Christmas this year, I gave her tickets to the Los Angeles Ballet's show of the Nutcracker. The Nutcracker is one of my favorite things about Christmas. When I was growing up, I would watch my VHS copy of George Balanchine's the nutcracker multiple times a week.

The LA Ballet's version of the nutcracker was a little different than the traditional one for one thing, there was no sugar plum fairy! & instead of land of sweets, it took place in the land of dolls. But still, I loved the ballet. :]

My mom also established a future tradition. She's taking her granddaughters to see the nutcracker.
