In order to experience the fun of an English Christmas tradition, pupils of C’ class made Christmas crackers.
To make our Christmas crackers we used tubes from toilet rolls. We filled them with small gifts and wishes written on paper and we covered and decorated them with wrapping paper and glossy ribbons.
A Christmas cracker is a tube wrapped by coloured paper, twisted on both sides. It is pulled by two people, often with arms crossed, at the Christmas dinner table. It often contains a coloured paper hat, a small toy and a motto, a joke or a riddle on a small strip of paper.
