CHRISTMAS CRACKERS ~ TRADITION ! ~ A BALLAD !

 

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 !
