Ding dong merrily its Christmas. Start the festive feast with a bang and and after the most wonderful meal get ready for some yuletide fun and merriment with these chime bar musical crackers. Inside each cracker you will find a different musical chime bar and stick- plus a numbered badge which everyone should ware. Nominate a conductor who following simple numbered sheet music and using a baton, points at each person (depending on their badge number) to play their chime bar resulting in beautiful music or total chaos! If less than 8 people are present then some will need to have 2 or more different chime bars but make sure you strike at the right time.
History of crackers.
Crackers are a British tradition dating back to Victorian times when a confectioner started selling sugared almonds each with a moto and wrapped in twisted paper as a love token. One day a jet of resin from the confectioners fire bust into flames with a loud crack. Using the idea he decided to make a log shaped package that would produce a load bang and inside would be a moto and an almond. Today crackers contain gifts, hats and jokes and are must for all celebrations keeping a great British Christmas tradition alive.
