so that you can chose what you want in them as a gift rather than buying them from a shop that have the same kinds of things in year after year,if you do do you tend to put a joke in them or do you put hats and a joke.My friend makes me laugh as she makes hers and she puts things in that are for the people that are at the dinner table at hers.She has to put either their own name on their own cracker or a picture that will tell her whos cracker is whos.She says it saves money as well as the person gets things that are useful.

I've never heard of this custom, is it kind of like a fortune cookie? I bake Christmas cookies for my neighbors. My sons miss my Christmas cookies, especially the cherry coconut bars which are their favorites. I really enjoy baking but I have to be in the mood.

Cherry coconut bars,that sounds good. I think she means a kind of popper. I have seen instructions to make them but it is not something we do.

No, as we are not really celebrating christmas here, there isn't a need for such things. Many chinese families here are not into such festive,. IF there's any cebelebrations, it will be an outing with friends, very seldom with family members. LIke my family, my mom will be out with her group of friends, going singing and eating while i will be with my bf and his family.

Yep, I make my own. I fill it up with glue inside so that if anyone eats it, it'l' shut their mouth up.

That sounds like fun. We don't do that here. We usually make a lot of cookies for Christmas time. I spend an entire day in December just making fudge and cookies for the Christmas and for New Years Eve. We feed them to guests, we bring some to my sister in laws house because she hosts Christmas, and we enjoy them for a couple of weeks here at home. They also make a great gift for teachers.

I would really like to see one of these. This is so new to me it sort of sounds strange as well.
