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]

Early cracker message.png
  • Earlier on Runescape Classic, christmas crackers when pulled were referred to as simply "cracker" on the dialogue, and if the other player received the party hat, you would see their name mentioned, i.e. "Playername got the contents!"
  • 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.
  • They are depicted as being white in RuneScape 2.
