One of the best things about Christmas meals isn’t edible at all, it’s the crackers you pull before you start to eat. I think the Christmas cracker is a fairly British thing, but it is something we could never have a festive meal without. The cracker is essentially a rolled up tube of paper with things inside and tied at both ends. They generally have a BANG! inside them so when you pull they make a cracking noise – hence the name.
Inside you’ll find a paper hat, a little novelty toy and a joke. The novelties are usually fairly naff, like the fortune telling fish or a spinning top or the ever hilarious false moustache. The hats are paper and often too big or two small but you have to wear them through the whole meal, it’s the law, honest. The best bit is the joke. It’s awful, really awful but that’s all part of the fun.
Here are some cracker jokes to give you a taste of Brit humour!
