The Nutcracker Book Tag!!!

Happy Holidays and Merry Wassail! Since I’m in such a festive mood, I thought I’d take the liberty of creating a book tag… a Nutcracker Book Tag, to be exact!

It’s not exactly a secret that I love the Nutcracker… the music, the story, the choreography, (some of) the film adaptations… to me, The Nutcracker = Christmas!

So why not turn it into a book tag??? This was such a blast and even if it’s a complete failure, I don’t care because I had fun doing it!

But I do hope others have fun with it too, which is why anyone and everyone is welcome to use this tag (and to tag others… I just chose not to tag specific people)! Just make sure to credit me and send me a link to your video or blog post so I can see your answers!

Now without further ado…
