Christmas Cracker Clue

Have you heard of Christmas Crackers? Christmas crackers are party favors used to celebrate special occasions, events or holidays. They are colorful wrapped paper tubes that you open by grabbing them by the ends and gently pull it apart creating a “pop or cracking” sound. They can be filled with trinkets, candy, party favors, and more.

Cost Plus World Market has one of the largest collections available during the holiday season and with this year’s fun treasure hunt, if you find a Golden Cracker it will consist of a $20, $50 or $100 reward, a paper crown tissue party hat, a motto (joke/riddle), a snap (friction activated popping device), and a small gift or novelty items. 

Each day I will be sharing Cost Plus World Market’s Golden Christmas Cracker Treasure Hunt daily joke and CLUE for your chance to win. Be sure to follow me on my Made in a Day FACEBOOK page for your daily clues. Today’s joke and clue are below.

My favorite holiday item in the Christmas Shop this year is the Holiday Camper Gingerbread Kit! I mean, how cute is this? What a fun project to do with the family! I love it! They have a sweet camper pillow and holiday cards with a camper on them too! 

Now let’s talk about this holiday season and gift-giving. Cost Plus World Market has such a vast selection of home decor, holiday decor, unique clothing, and exciting food and beverage items from around the globe.
