Day 13: Christmas Crackers

what are christmas crackers you ask? yeah, i thought the same thing. but, as we celebrated christmas with ryan, kerry, and ethan today. we added some christmas crackers and they are actually, well, kind of fun.

christmas crackers:

christmas crackers are an integral part of christmas celebrations in the united kingdom and other places like australia, canada, new zeland, etc. it consists of a cardboard tube wrapped in a brightly decorated twist of paper, making it resemble of an over sized sweet-wrapper. the cracker is pulled by two people - kind of like a wishbone, the cracker will split unevenly. the split is accompanied with a small bang and usually a small toy, jokes, and a paper crown in the middle.

it was a lot of fun as we wore the crowns during dinner and told the silly jokes through dinner. and a plus, ethan had fun with all the little gifts.

so, if you want to do something fun and different, grab some crackers to add to the christmas festivities. :)
