Christmas crackers aren't a snack

Christmas crackers, which also date back to Victorian times, are cardboard tubes wrapped in colorful paper that, when pulled apart by two people, make a loud cracking sound. Families traditionally open their crackers together on Christmas Day, and the tubes are usually filled with a small toy, a riddle or joke, and a tissue-paper crown.  After opening the crackers, it's also tradition to wear the paper crowns throughout the Christmas meal.
