Christmas Cracker

This time next week it will all be over. The presents unwrapped, the goose well and truly cooked and the best of the Cadburys Roses already missing. After two or three days of Christmas indulgence we will soon be considering our new years resolutions.

The humble Christmas cracker originated in Victorian times. Image via.
I hope all the shopping and socialising hasn’t taken its toll and that you will be ready for whatever the day brings.

A tradition that takes place in most households up and down the land is the Christmas cracker. Most of us will don the obligatory paper hat and get strangely excited about the small gift that awaits. Give me the mini screwdriver and I’m a happy girl.



Of course, the other thing we can’t do without is the Christmas cracker joke. Most of these jokes will have been heard year after year but we still look forward to a good groan.

With this is mind, I present to you some old favourites and some new, which you can use if the one in your cracker just doesn't cut it. Here’s my offering of twenty of the best or worst, you decide….
