Traditional Christmas "Crackers"
- Item #: 6CC
A tradition that dates back to 1840 when a sweet shop owner offered sugared almonds with sentimental messages. While watching his wood fire one evening, a log burst into flame with a loud crack. This inspired the entrepreneur to contrive a log-shaped box that would pop when pulled, revealing his almond and sentiment within.
Each holds a few lovely glass marbles, fortune, party hat, and snap!... When placed on alternate dinner plates, each is shared by two. The winner pulls the larger end. Box of 6. 12".
