Office party season is almost over, and the family season starts. Both have in common loads of booze, festive food and Christmas crackers. The first time I saw them here in London, I was intrigued by their shape. The small explosion was a little surprising too. It seems like it is a traditional Christmas must-have in UK. What about other countries?
For those who don´t know what a Christmas Cracker is, it basically looks like this:
Two people pull its ends until it cracks open. You then hear a small explosion, and one of the players ends up with a small gift and a joke. The joke is similar to the pic on top of this entry.
Some of the one-liners are actually quite good. The type of humour is absurd, generally. It can simply be a pun, enough to make us giggle. Here are some of the best that I´ve heard lately. Have you got any? Then, share them with us!
