Summary[ edit ] The story begins on Christmas Eve, at the Stahlbaum house. Clara, seven, and her brother, Fritz, sit outside the parlour speculating about what kind of present their Godfather , Drosselmeyer, who is a clockmaker and inventor , has made for them. However, as they can only do the same thing over and over without variation, the children quickly tire of it. At this point, Clara notices a nutcracker , and asks to whom he belongs. Her father tells her that he belongs to all of them, but that since she is so fond of him she will be his special caretaker.
