Sunday 24th December 1989   After dinner 19.41

Mum is usually in charge of most of the Christmas preparations but Dad always does the crackers.

On Christmas Eve, he carefully takes them apart, swaps the jokes for some of his own and puts them back together. He never upgrades the novelty prizes and the snappers don’t usually work after he has fiddled about with them. He sometimes forgets to put the hats back in. He says that the better jokes make up for all that.

Homemade crackers.
