Every one loves cracking open their Christmas Crackers - their fun, festive and memorable.
Christmas crackers also known as bon-bons are an essential part of any Christmas celebrations. A cracker originally consisted of a cardboard tube vibrantly decorated with a twist of paper, making it appear like a giant sweet-wrapper. The cracker is pulled by two people, and a contains a joke, paper christmas hat and small toy at the start of a meal.
The Cracker was invented by Thomas J Smith in 1847 in London as a marketing ploy for bon bons and is closely linked with the sweet wrapper. Originally containing just sweets, over time the Christmas cracker evolved to contain other objects and puller cracks to create a bang to mimic the sound of a crackling fire.
These days, more and more people are making their own hand made Christmas crackers and stuffing them with all sorts of gifts. A continually changing demand now has lead to hundreds of people making their own money origami cracker fillers. Why dont you
Tinsel has been a long festive Christmas tradition since 1610 when it originated from Nuremberg. Tinsel originally made from strands of silver was used as a Christmas decoration to enhance the flickering of the candles on the tree and to represent the starry sky over a Nativity scene.
As silver ages fairly quickly people started using other metallic forms of tinsel, Fools Gold was a popular choice but as it was fragile and costly it was only used in small quantities and only very wealthy people could afford it to fully decorate their tree.
Now times have moved on and more and more people are creating their own handmade Christmas tinsel again using dollar bills and Origami. its cheaper, more beautiful, more memorable and can be reused after the festive season or stored away for years to come.
The Christmas Candy Cane has been a Christmas tradition for years - and will be for years to come. The first documented use of candy canes in America to celebrate Christmas was way back in 1847, when a German-Swedish immigrant named August Imgard hung the candy canes from the branches of a Christmas tree.
The infamous striped versions came about in the 20th century. This then spread globally and continues to remain a popular Christmas tradition.
Candy canes are primarily used as a decoration for Christmas trees. This is done by using the "hook" shape of the candy cane to hang them on branches of the Christmas tree. A single tree can have many candy canes so get folding.
