Nutcrackers: Cute for Christmas or totally creepy? When it comes to these seven, the answer is definitely just creepy.

And as such you can bet there's a heated debate between those who see them as a Christmas decorating staple and those whose dreams are haunted by wooden dolls with massive crunching teeth. You can guess which side of the fence we fall on -- and in case you're still on the fence, here are seven examples of why nutcrackers are the creepiest of all Christmas traditions.

5" Skullcracker Nutcrackers! ($14.49)

6. Seraphina The Victorian Nutcracker

Seraphina The Victorian Nutcracker Handcrafted by Brenda ($25)
