Literary Holiday Crackers
Since the nineteenth century, Christmas crackers have been a delightful tradition in Britain. Short cardboard tubes, festively wrapped and beribboned, are filled with goodies (traditionally, a small toy, a paper crown, and a joke) to enliven any occasion. We’ve given them a literary twist and an upgrade and filled them with items for booklovers of all ages: instead of jokes, we’ve included a literary trivia question and a “name that quotation”—a fun way to involve the entire dinner table or party.
For adults, instead of an inexpensive charm, we’ve tucked in an elegant small pen (and refill) in a felt sleeve.
For children, the small gifts included are a Dr. Seuss book eraser, and either a mini reader rubber duckie or a shuttle pen. And we’ve kept the paper crown in all.
When the tabs at each end of the crackers are pulled, they snap; the gifts are then unwrapped and the fun begins.
Please note: We have limited quantities of this item; if you are interested, please order sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.
