Aren't Crackers Just For Christmas?
At Crackersforbonbons we believe that crackers go beyond Christmas.
It can be used to celebrate anything joyful, be it Easter, Birthday, wedding, Office-parties, and occassions year round.
They can add fun and joy to any celebration.
The word "cracker" is derived from the Middle English "crakken," meaning to break. While Easter Cracker or Easter Bonbons might not have been used to celebrate the festivities, unlike their Christmas counterpart, however, celebration crackers have often been re-imagined by late 19th and early 20th-century manufacturers.
Manufacturers were pretty active in keeping up to date with current affairs and produced ranges of celebration crackers that followed various important events. Such as Votes for women, Charlie Chaplin, coronations, the wireless, and even the battle of Tel el Kebir (in the Anglo-Egyptian War of 1882) were just some of the subjects to get the crackers out to celebrate.
What Is An Easter Cracker?
Easter Crackers are the equivalent of Christmas crackers in Australia. Like any other celebration crackers, Easter Crackers are pulled apart by two people which causes a friction snap to "pop", revealing goodies inside.
Traditionally Christmas crackers were at first invented by London confectioner Tom Smith.
In 1847, he is said to have introduced the joys of the French bonbon, a sugar-almond wrapped in paper with a twist at both ends- to England.
Smith, a keen salesman, added 'love motto' tohis crackers, to boost sales and keep ahead of his competitors.
Later, he enlarged the packaging, replaced the bonbon with a gift and, in 1860, added the exploding 'crack'.
His son, Walter, later introduced the now-obligatory paper hat.
It has also been debated that the first person to sell crackers in Britain was in fact the Italian born London confectioner.
His company, which was established in 1846, a year before Smith's, described itself as "the oldest makers of Christmas crackers in the United Kingdom".
Both companies initially called their creations 'Cosaques', because the crack they made when pulled were reminiscent of the cracking whips of Russian Cossack horsemen.
Origin stories of the cracker vary, with the most popular explanation being that it was invented when Mr. Smith walked past his fireplace and a burning log made some noise.
Some sources claim he spent years trying to perfect a way of making sound. But silver fulminate 'snaps' were already around for decades, and it's more likely that Smith merely found new use for an existing novelty.
