Robin Reed Concerto with Musical Whistles Christmas Crackers are traditional handmade English Christmas crackers. Set of 8 Season's Greetings design. Each of the 8 contain not only a hat and a joke but a different musical note that allows you to create your band. By using the music we have included, you can play both everyday and Christmas songs.
Party crackers are a British tradition dating back to Victorian times when a confectioner started selling sugared almonds, each with a motto and wrapped in a twisted paper package, as love tokens. This fun tradition is the perfect way to bring Christmas dinner to a close or to break the ice at a holiday get-together! An unforgettable occasion with fun and music.
One day a jet of resin from the confectioners log fire burst into flames with a loud 'crack'. Using this idea he decided to make a log shaped package that would produce a surprise bang and inside there would be an almond and a motto. It soon became a resounding favorite at parties with toys and hats added to each 'cracker'.
By the end of the century it was well established as a traditional holiday custom and now each year virtually every household in the UK has crackers. In recent years crackers have become essential ice breakers at all types of parties, dinner parties, weddings and celebrations. Place one at each place setting for decoration and then pull it open with a friend and share the fun!

How to Orchestrate The Fun
Inside each handmade cracker you will find a different musical whistle and a numbered badge which everyone should wear. Nominate someone to be the conductor who, following the simple numbered music sheet and using the enclosed baton, points at each person (depending on their badge number) to blow their whistle
The Result: Beautiful music or total chaos! If less than 8 people are present then some will need to have 2 or more different whistles to blow. But make sure you blow the right one at the right time! Make beautiful music at your next get together.
