Christmas Crackers — a British Tradition
For readers not familiar with the tradition of Christmas crackers, here’s some background.
Christmas crackers are brightly colored paper tubes that are placed on each plate at Christmas parties.
In 1860, Smith added bangers — two strips of chemically impregnated paper that make a cracking sound when pulled apart.
Over time, jokes replaced the love poems.
