Updated for 2021 - because laughter is always a tonic!
Join Britain’s care home residents and carers as we continue to #CrackerSmile this Christmas.
Last Christmas we want to give everyone an opportunity to make each other smile through the sharing of messages of goodwill and festive jokes and show that despite the pandemic, Christmas could still be a magical time for residents and care colleagues to enjoy.
#CrackerSmile was a huge success that raised many people’s spirits...so we want to do it again this Christmas!
It's simple - we want to hear your messages of festive goodwill and favourite Christmas cracker jokes and to help you share them with as many people as possible.
How to get involved
We’d love it if you could share a video of yourself telling your favourite joke or message of goodwill, but you can use text if you prefer.
On Facebook, you can add your warm words or jokes as a comment to our page here.
Using specially created graphics, we’ll turn your jokes and messages of goodwill into a series of short digital Christmas Cracker videos and share them far and wide to help spread some light-hearted festive feeling.
The small print
Please make sure you have permission from anyone you feature in your video and please keep your cracker jokes clean and respectable. After all, you don’t want to end up on Santa’s naughty list.
