Day 309: Happy Christmas

 We began our festivities on Christmas Eve with some crackers. 
Not the ones you eat, but these: 

Wikipedia- "Crackers are a part of Christmas celebrations in the UK and countries such as Australia, Canada, New Zealand and South Africa. A cracker consists of a cardboard tube wrapped in brightly decorated paper. The cracker is pulled by two people, and, much in the manner of a wishbone, the cracker splits unevenly. The split is accompanied by a small bang similar to that used in a cap gun."

"In one version of the tradition the person with the larger portion of cracker empties the contents from the tube and keeps them. In another each person will have their own cracker and will keep its contents regardless of whose end they were in. Typically these contents are a colored paper hat or crown; a small toy, a joke or piece of trivia on a small strip of paper. Crackers are often pulled before or after Christmas dinners or at parties."
