The more adventurous expats will be making their own crackers. I would love to do this for 2009, but I think the kids are too young and I know they would not understand or appreciate it now. I can just imagine it would be all of us in the room for a total of 15 seconds, before they lose interest and wander off and I am lost in a pile of empty toilet rolls, wrapping paper and trinkets. I think the making your own route is quite noble though - if for nothing else than getting a better prize than a plastic ring and a bad joke. So, I am looking for comments from other expats - where will you get crackers this year (buy, brought over, or homemade)? If you are making your own, what are you putting inside?
Thanks to BBC for the picture.
