Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a cracker or two. It is not too late to make them, although if you don't have any cracker snaps to hand you make need to be content with bangless crackers this year. All you need are some cardboard tubes and decorative paper.
The great thing about making your own Christmas crackers is that you can add your own gifts and, of course, terrible jokes. see How to Make Christmas Crackers for more information.
