These aren't for eating, but they are a lot of fun! Crackers are a very fun way to start off a meal, and a tradition that began during Victorian England. Pull both ends of the tube, they make a popping cracking noise, and you can pull your prizes out! There is a party hat, a little novelty prize, and a terrible joke (of course you HAVE to read it aloud at the table). Some examples:
What does Santa suffer from if he gets stuck in a chimney? Claustrophobia!
What kind of motorbike does Santa ride? A Holly Davidson!
What happens to elves when they are naughty? Santa gives them the sack!
