Christmas crackers were invented by Victorian shopkeeper, Tom Smith, and, in one form or another, have been part of a traditional British Christmas ever since. Modern Christmas crackers usually contain a colourful party hat, in the shape of a crown, a small gift and a corny, festive joke and are allocated, one per person, during Christmas Dinner and other meals during the holiday season.

Of course, Christmas crackers are designed to be pulled, which is why they contain a chemically impregnated ‘snap’ but, even if (satisfyingly) loud bangs and paper hats aren’t your thing, crackers can be an attractive addition to your festive table decoration. Many Christmas crackers designs are predominantly red, in keeping with tradition, but many colours and finishes, including luxury gold or silver foil effect, are available. If you’re pulling crackers with kids, make sure you have some with hats that’ll fit them, jokes that they’ll understand and gifts that they’ll appreciate.

If you invite your family and friends to dine with you over Christmas, you may need a fair few Christmas crackers, but the good news is that they need not cost you a fortune. You’ll find that cheap Christmas crackers, suitable for sophisticated dinner parties, traditional family get-togethers and anything in between, are available at Poundstretcher.
