A Christmas cracker is a discontinued holiday item that was dropped during the 2001 Christmas event on 25 December 2001 - RuneScape's first Christmas event. They are traded for a high price because of their rarity.

Pulling[edit | edit source]

A bubble is visible when the player is pulling a Christmas cracker.

A Christmas cracker holds a Party Hat and a miscellaneous item. To open it, one player must use it with another player. Upon pulling it one player will get the prize - a random partyhat and one miscellaneous item.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Before a hidden update, when pulling the crackers both players would get something out of it. One person would get the party hat and the other would get a miscellaneous item that could be from coal up to rune armour.[2]
  • Christmas crackers are depicted as having a white wrapper in RuneScape 2.
