Bon Bons/Christmas Crackers
Party crackers are an English tradition dating back to Victorian times when a confectioner started selling sugared almonds with love messages inside.
Then one Christmas, he saw a log burst into flames with a loud 'crack' and he decided to make a log shaped package for his sugared almonds that produced a surprise bang.
The 'Cracker' or 'Bon Bon' -as it became known- became popular at parties with novelties and hats added.
It is now an ideal ice breaker at any party or family dinner. Place one at each place setting for decoration and then- pull it open with a friend and share the fun!
