Happy Christmas and Edwardian Cheer

It doesn't matter what happens to a man but it does matter how he takes it. That's the true spirit of an Edwardian gentleman.

 -- Herbert Johnson (“adventurer, stockjobber, and sportsman”), and owner of the famed Marsh Court in Hampshire
Merry Christmas to all the dear readers of these intermittent posts on Eating Like an Edwardian. May the indefatigable spirit expressed by Herbert Johnson guide you throughout 2012.

Some Edwardian workers from 1910 are manufacturing Christmas crackers for you. Enjoy a lovely holiday celebration full of cheer!

I brought crackers for Christmas lunch with the supervisor this year. Tacky gifts (a "Chrystal" keychain, paper puzzles, and hair-tie) and unfunny jokes are exactly what is needed during the holidays. I've heard of some stores that create "fancy crackers" with expensive gifts -- wonder what those could be?
