Advent Calendar - Door 14

Christmas Crackers

We had these crackers  a few years ago,  I thought they were so traditional and pretty.

Read about Christmas Crackers here


  1. Just read the Tom Smith Cracker story - very interesting indeed! we have a set of small and not very interesting but shiny and decorative crackers that sit on the tree year after year - their pop of colour adds to the twinkly overall effect. So their mediocre gifts and contents are overlooked!

  2. I absolutely love those crackers Julie, they remind me of the ones we used to get when we were young! xx

  3. They are the loveliest crackers I think I've ever seen.

  4. I was looking for crackers yesterday, but they're all so commercial and tacky - still have to find some for the photo prompt ... these look lovely.

  5. The most important thing about Christmas
    crackers...are...the little prezzies...
    and the funny jokes....
    What does Santa suffer from if he gets
    stuck in a chimney?

    Why does Santa have three gardens?
    So he can 'Ho Ho Ho'!

    Why did Santa go to the doctor?
    Because of his bad "elf"!

    Why did Santa's helper see the doctor?
    Because he had a low "elf" esteem!

    What kind of motorbike does Santa ride?
    A Holly Davidson!

    What do you call a cat in the desert?
    Sandy Claws!

    Who delivers presents to cats?
    Santa Paws!

  6. I had a German friend who discovered crackers when she lived in the UK for a few years. She sent some back to her family and was amazed when she found them carefully unwrapping them rather than pulling them. They soon got the hang of it once she'd shown them! Arilx
