Joyful Nativity Party Crackers
Party crackers are a British tradition dating back to Victorian times, when a confectioner started selling sugared almonds, each with a motto and wrapped in a twisted paper package, as love tokens. One day a jet of resin from the confectioner's log fire burst into flame with a loud "crack!" Using this idea, he decided to make a log-shaped package that would produce a surprise bang and reveal an almond and a motto. It soon became a firm favorite at parties, with toys, hats, and jokes added to each "cracker".
By the end of the century, the cracker was well-established as a traditional holiday custom, and now virtually every household in the UK has crackers each year.
In recent years, crackers have become essential icebreakers at all types of dinner parties, weddings, birthdays, and celebrations. Set one at each place setting as a decoration, and then pull it open with a friend and share the fun!
