English Cracker Workshop! @ The Historic Jackson Ranch
Dec 9 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Build your own English Crackers!  Pulling Crackers to find what treats are inside has been a holiday tradition in England for over hundred and fifty years!

The Christmas Cracker was invented by Thomas Smith in 1846.  During a visit to Paris he came across the bon-bon, a sugar almond wrapped in tissue paper with a twist either side of the centrally placed sweet. Thomas tried selling similarly wrapped sweets in England which only sold well at Christmas.

In the 1850's, he included a simple love poem with the sweet, since many of his bon-bons were bought by men to give to women.  Then in 1860, he added the banger that made a loud noise when pulled apart. At first these novelties were called 'cosaques', then became known as 'crackers'.  Thomas's idea was copied by other manufactures, so he replaced the sweet with a surprise gift.
