The tradition of cracking open a box of Christmas crackers has been around since the 1800s. The idea was first introduced by an Englishman named Tom Smith, who designed the first Christmas cracker in 1847.
The Victorian Christmas crackers were simply a cardboard tube with a sugary, cinnamon-based filling to an elaborate and colorful German gingerbread house.
