    Don't forget that when you pull them, one person will get the "long" end and one the short and in theory the person with the longest bit of the cracker gets what's inside

    Of course if you win twice, it's nice to share ;-)

    Apparently you now have to be a certain age [over 16?] in order to purchase Christmas crackers as they are deemed to contain high explosive!
    In work we have little pop-ups on the till when you scan crackers to tell you it's only for 16+ people.

    Oh, I didn't know this! I just figured everyone got one and pulled from both sides at once!

    Ahhhhh... I didn't know if you meant bean sprouts, alfalfa sprouts, or what!!! I love Brussels sprouts!

    Actually I thought a person would grab the cracker from both ends and pull. I didn't realize it involved two people pulling on the same cracker! See! I would have done it all wrong! LOL

    and the fun also is to find the prize that normally just fly off once the cracker pulled!
