Is that title too suggestive? I don’t think so, given that this fellow, a nutcracker, was taller than me. I’m over six feet tall and I definitely had to look up to him. He was standing guard at the entrance to the kids area at the Vancouver Christmas Market, a traditional German market where you could learn about chocolate, eat bratwurst, and drink beer while checking out handmade crafts and fruit preserves.
I’m not sure why he’s on guard duty. I guess the Rat King keeps trying to go into the kids area to make his own chocolate Santa lollipop.
