Cracker Traditions...

TRADITIONS: 

 

1)  Everyone at the Christmas Dinner table turns to the person to their right.  Each person holds on to one end of the snapper (not the tissue - the snapper only!)  They count to 3 and pull sharply!  The cracker will snap!  Everyone continues in this manner until every cracker has been snapped.  It is then time to open the crackers  laughing all the while and enjoying the little surprises.!  Everyone must don and try to keep on their paper hats!!

 

2)  

 

We open the crackers by two people pulling the paper plus the popper, and the one who gets the biggest half gets the whole cracker plus contents!  Then the one who loses pulls one with someone else until everyone gets one....

 

Ed Smith, England

 

3)  "Our son and daughter are 30 and 34. We have a tradition of opening gifts, then our crackers. We all continue to wear our paper crowns while we take everything out of our Christmas stockings! Our son's fiancée says she has the most fun at our house on Christmas mornings.

I am so happy I found your web site! Your crackers sound wonderful! My family will be so surprised to find so many things in their crackers!

Thank you for adding to our Christmas joy!! " Donna L. - California
