WE HAVE POSTED A NEW FUSION *MEMORIES* ~
PLEASE CHECK & ADD A POEM ~ THANKS ~ A & B XOX
TRADITION ! The reason why CHRISTMAS is so so special is because it is ALWAYS the SAME ! Same Tree - same Turkey - same Pudding (which we set on FIRE !) etc etc etc ! AND of course CHRISTMAS CRACKERS ! They were invented by TOM BUTLER over 150 years ago and they never ever change ! In millions of Crackers there are only 10 Mottos - 10 Jokes & 10 silly gifts and a paper crown ~ TRADITION ! You can make 10 for 100 pence or pay £100 for 10 @ Harrods - BUT they are exactly the same ! Millions are pulled every year and will be ad finitum ! Its CHRISMAS - its TRADITION ! Love Angela & Brian XOXOX
CHRISTMAS CRACKERS ! In a digital age ?
They*re rather Old Fashioned ~ they say
In the last CENTURY they were all the rage
BUT ~ They*re still part of CHRISTMAS TODAY !
They cant be updated ~ They are what they are
Like the Pudding ~ the Turkey ~ the Sprouts
The CYNICS all say ~ *They will just fade away !*
With other TRADITIONS ~ But I have my doubts !
Once they were cheap ~ but now they*re expensive
Whats inside*s exactly the same
A Motto - a Joke - a Wotsit - a Hat
When you pull it a BANG and * A Flash of Blue Flame !*
When setting the TABLE for *The Feast of the Year*
Best knives - forks & spoons & spark-ling glasses
No table is neat - effete & complete .......
Until with each setting ~ there is CRACKERS ~ AMEN !
