The popularity of Target's pride Nutcracker is quickly becoming the story of how the gays stole Christmas.

As reported by the Miami Herald, the holiday hot item has been flying off the shelves and sparking conversation about its potential to stir family trouble during the holiday seasons.

One Twitter user wrote: "Me and my husband showing up to family Xmas dinner with this Pride Nutcracker would be quite a statement."


About the tchotchke, Target makes it clear that it is a bold LGBTQ statement of support.

"Show your advocacy for LGBTQIA+ friends and family in fun, festive style with this Pride Nutcracker from Wondershop," Target says on its website. "Showcasing a man dressed in traditional nutcracker costume holding a pride flag and wearing a rainbow hat, this decorative figurine helps you get in the rhythm for a fun and festive Christmas. The bright color scheme adds a merry touch to your seasonal display."

Making its way around the internet, the festive figurine "reeks of rainbow capitalism" as one Twitter user put it, but it is also a seasonal step forward for LGBTQ representation.
