  • Yes, completely a UK thing, as are the hats. J and I do usually pick some up at out local import store…just for fun.

  • well personally even though the hats are class, i like the toys too. at our church christmas party last week, from my cracker i got a lovely little pink hair bobble and a very entertaining little puzzle, its always the little things that please me lol.

  • you should’nt think about crackers only the importance of christmas e.g your family and jesus even though its very tradional to have crackers of a meaning of giving and Recieveing. I love the presents in them too.

  • Christmas crackers were invented by Thomas Smith. He had imported some French novelties to sell as Christmas gifts, but these were not popular until he wrapped them up and added a snapper.

  • o cool!!! sounds like me
