Christ­mas crack­ers

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Wild At Home - SM

RSPB.COM, £14 FOR 6; £26 FOR 12

Dat­ing back to the Vic­to­rian era, crack­ers are an in­te­gral part of Christ­mas past and present, but those irk­some throw­away plas­tic gifts in­side prob­a­bly shouldn’t be part of Christ­mas fu­ture (though the mini screw­drivers are, ad­mit­tedly, quite handy). For a tat-free fes­tive ta­ble, con­sider the RSPB’s Foot­print-in-the-Snow crack­ers, made from FSC-cer­ti­fied pa­per. Each cracker yields a hat, joke and fact, plus three Top Trumps cards for a bit of bonus birdy trivia while the sprouts are di­gest­ing. In case you were won­der­ing, the barn owl (6) trumps the puf­fin (1) and av­o­cet (4) for max num­ber of eggs.
