Last week our socks danced the first half of The Nutcracker ballet for you. After a brief intermission, the classic tale finishes this week—remember, if any of the principal players strike your fancy, links to the styles are scattered throughout the narration. Now, shhhh, the lights are dimming and the performers are coming out . . .
Traditionally, the nutcracker turns into a human prince after Marie helps defeat the mouse army. But Marie likes the nutcracker the way he is, so he stays the way he looks, but has a more royal bearing now. They romantically dance in the snow.
Then coffee stripes wrestle a little bit, because they’re kind of wound up on caffeine.
Candy cane-coloured red and white stripes twist about.
But the dancers begin disappearing . . .
And Marie is all alone.
She wakes up at the foot of the Christmas tree, next to the still broken nutcracker.
With determination, Marie goes back to sleep, back to the Land of Sweet Socks. If it was all a dream, what a sweet, sock dream it was!
