Christmas Cracker

My Christmas Cracker arrived yesterday and now I must wait until Christmas to open it! There were a few extra goodies tucked in the package to tide me over til Christmas. Thanks Mary for the package .... can't wait to see what is inside.

For those that don't know about Christmas Crackers - On one of my list, the CQI list, they hold an annual swap. You pair up with someone from around the world and put together a 7 inch tube filled with goodies. Wrap it up and send it on it's way.

Many years ago the original Christmas Cracker was opened by two people - one person on each end - each pulling in opposite directions -the package would 'pop' open and all the goodies would spill out. So wait until Christmas and I'll let you know what 'pops' out of mine!

You are so good to be able to wait! I'd never manage it. Looks like a great blue block in your future. =)

It is a beautiful wrapping - looks like it will be worth the wait.
