Christmas Cracker and Card history at the Victoria and Albert Museum

If there is one thing this Cracker Elf is determined to do before too long, it is to visit the Victoria and Albert Museum in Britain.  I would most specially love to see their historical Christmas cracker collection. Here are a few items shown on their website:

"This card is a reproduction of an 1843 card, commissioned by Sir Henry Cole, the Museum’s first director. It combines two traditional Christmas themes. The central illustration shows three generations of a family raising a toast to the recipient of the card, and the outer, less colourful images show acts of charity, and giving to the poor."
