Nope, we’re not talking about edible crackers (we call those biscuits for cheese, though). These are a very important staple at the Christmas dinner table. A Christmas cracker is a cardboard tube that resembles an oversized sweet wrapper. Two people grab either side of the cracker and pull it to make the cracker split in two. Whoever is holding the side still attached to the cracker’s centre-chamber gets to keep the contents — which usually include a corny joke, a small toy and a paper crown.
