Literary Holiday Crackers
Volume A Item $75.00
Volume B Item $75.00
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: 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 the adults, instead of an inexpensive charm, we’ve tucked in an elegant small pen (and refill) in a felt sleeve. And we’ve kept the paper crown. When the tabs at each end of the crackers are pulled, they snap; the gifts are then unwrapped and the fun begins.
For adults, we have created two different sets (Volumes A and B). They both include a pen and crown but the trivia questions and quotations are different. Volume A has gold ribbon; Volume B has silver. Each set includes 6 crackers.
We’ve also made a set of 6 for children so that even the youngest readers can be included in the fun. The small gifts included are a Dr. Seuss book eraser, either a mini reader rubber duckie or a shuttle pen, and, of course, a paper crown. The literary trivia questions and “name that quotation” are appropriate for Ages 3 to 8.
Please note: We have limited quantities of this item; if you are interested, please order sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.
