A true design in the spirit of the traditional holiday, The Nutcracker House is a must-have for any Department 56 collector. The house was introduced to the Original Snow Village Christmas houses in January of 2017. It features a beautiful, snow-covered home with several nutcrackers guarding the entrance. The lighted home coordinates with the Nutcracker Sweet piece. It pays homage to the ballerinas and story of the Nutcracker performances.
