12 Festive Christmas Crackers!

Do you set out crackers on your table on Christmas Day? Christmas crackers are a tradition in the UK but you can find them in the US, too. It’s one of my favorite parts of Christmas. You just set the little paper tubes on each plate and at the beginning of the meal, everyone opens theirs by pulling each end. They are usually filled with toys and candy and colorful crowns, my favorite part! Everyone wears a crown during the meal! Below, I’ve gathered some of my favorite Christmas crackers. I’ve also included several DIY versions for those who would like to make their own! Merry Christmas!
