A Christmas cracker is a bit of cardboard tube, wrapped in colorful paper to resemble a big piece of candy. It's pulled apart by two people (just like a "wishbone"), and the one who gets the larger piece gets to keep the prize inside.
If mini-explosions aren't your thing, maybe you'd rather have the other kind of Christmas cracker: Ritz snowflakes.
Or perhaps some Christmas crackers in the form of holiday puns? Happy solving!
