Christmas cracker detail
Pulling christmas cracker

A player pulling a Christmas cracker.

Christmas crackers are trade-able holiday items that can be obtained by completing one of the Christmas holiday events that occur once per year. This also rewards the player with all other holiday items associated with Christmas.

Previously, they were obtained by using the clues given by Jagex through various means (forums, Twitter, etc) and giving a specific set of items to an NPC. This event started on 1 September 2013 and lasted until 7 September, with one clue being shown every day. Players could only receive a Christmas cracker for the clue given that day. If a player participated for all 7 days, they would have gotten 7 crackers. If a player tried to do a clue from a previous day, the specified NPC would not accept the items.

Crackers can be pulled by using them on another player. It's important to note that the owner of the cracker is not guaranteed to be the one to obtain the items.


Held within the cracker is a partyhat and one other item or a stack of items, such as some coins, runes, or rune armour. To open it, it must be used with another player. Upon opening, the player who had the cracker and the player it was used on each have a 50/50 chance to receive a randomly coloured party hat, while the other player gets the other item.
