The pop of a cracker is always accompanied by delighted laughter and echoes of joyful, Victorian Christmases past. Invented in 1847 by Thomas J. Smith, a London candy maker, crackers are traditionally filled with small gifts, clever mottos, jokes, and riddles, and whimsical paper hats.
These holiday crackers contain a paper crown, a joke or riddle, the cracker snap, and a small gift or notion. Each cracker is 12.5 in (31.75 cm) long and every box contains eight crackers—four wrapped in white and embellished with silver-and-gold stars and trees, and four wrapped in glittering gold.
