The next instalment in this year’s #XmasAutisticLifeHacks series is about a Christmas dinner staple. They can make Christmas Day go with a bang, but the noise made by crackers as they snap can be a little too much if you’re sensitive to noise.

To work around that, our Coordinator Pesha Thornton has a really useful tip for making Christmas crackers far less noisy without being any less fun:

“Crackers: If you have hypersensitivity to noise, try suggesting making your own crackers without snaps.

“If you can’t make your own, simply cut the snaps out of shop-bought crackers.”
