What is the Christmas cracker?

It is a tube of decorated paper twisted at both end. It makes a cracking sound when pulled at both end and breaks to reveal a prize.

Inside it sometimes has a little prize or a great prize depending on how much you spend for the set of crackers and sometimes has a Christmas joke and hat.

Christmas cracker was invented by Thomas Smith in 1846. He went to Paris and got the idea from sweets wrapped in paper when he returned to England he put chocolates inside paper and then slowly added jokes and expressions. He added chemically impregnated paper that makes a bang when pulled apart for an extra surprise.
