May 25th Nutcracker Day

There is nothing like a Nutcracker that makes Christmas time come to life. That’s why Leavenworth, Washington celebrates Nutcracker Day on May 25th. Actually it’s the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum that came up with the idea. They have some 7,000 nutcrackers, some dating back to the Roman Empire era. It is a day they open up the museum to people so they can experience nutcrackers and even crack some hazelnuts and walnuts. All in all, it’s a really fun day even though it’s not around Christmas and it’s not the Leavenworth most people are familiar with.

How to celebrate – Plan a trip to Leavenworth, Washington. Break out your own Nutcracker collection. Get ready for Christmas in July.
