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.

* >* Bring candies, little gifts and a special note to fill your Crackers! Choose your theme: Christmas, Hanukkah, The New Year!
* >* Save and bring toilet paper round cardboard centers to stuff.
* >* Wrapping paper, ribbon, snaps (the popper), kings hat, extra fillers, and refreshments will be provided.
* >* If you are unable to attend the class, you may schedule and reserve a time to come with your own group, family, friends, social group, etc. To schedule, send an email to: Patrice@SkinnyLlamaProductions.com

NIOSITA for Fortune Telling Booth Volunteers @ The Jackson Ranch
Apr 8 @ 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm

NIOSITA

For NIOSA Fortune Telling Booth volunteers! 

This is where I train folks to read cards that we use at the booth at NIOSA, Night In Old San Antonio. The cards were created by Floy Fontaine Jordan, when she was 18 years old, for the first Fortune Telling Booth that she created for the 1st Fiesta in 1920.  Floy's mother and aunt coordinated the Fiestas to support the San Antonio Conservation Society.  Which supports preservation of historic properties, parks, waterways, traditions and the intangible heritage of this multicultural city and its neighboring counties through education, advocacy, grants, preservation projects and programs. http://www.saconservation.org/

Although food and beverages are provided, volunteers are invited to bring a cultural dish to share at this Niosita.  Also, your Floy Fontain Jordan Tarot cards! If you don't have a deck, bring a plain deck of playing cards.  Some folks get the oversized ones!  

The Fortune Telling Booth, chaired by Patrice Villastrigo, is in Mission Trail, one of 15 culturally themed areas that comprise NIOSA.  In 2018: NIOSA is on April 24-27.  Hours: 5:30PM – 10:30PM  At La Villita

 

To volunteer, contact Patrice Villastrigo at Patrice@SkinnyLlamaProductions.com

Shift times: 5:30 – 8 and 8 – 10:30
