When it comes to Christmas crackers are you a tad competitive?
Are you a sore loser if you don't get that snap?
Defence technology experts have found the perfect technique to ensure you win the Christmas cracker every time
Step 1: Hold your end of the cracker at a lower angle to your opponent
Step 2: Use a firm , two handed grip on your end
Step 3: When it's time to pull, make a slow steady pull rather than a fast tug
Lastly, don't be too aggressive! You may compromise the end of your cracker!
An etiquette coach has also given guidance on how to correctly time your cracker shenanigans.
According to a "social behaviour expert," Liz Brewer, crackers should be opened at the end of the main course, or after the dessert.
It's not polite to lean over guests to pull a cracker, and apparently, it's not appropriate to wear your hat away form the table.
Finally, always congratulate the victor. Don't be a sore loser- especially if you lost your end to a little one!
