The Christmas Cones can of course be used for decorating around the house, just as they are, or filled with a little greenery or sweets.
From my childhood I remember the cones being filled with nuts. Walnuts & hazelnuts were most common, some years the stores would carry macadamia nuts too. The cones were filled with nuts all in their shells, so one of the traditional indoor Christmas activities would be to crack nuts and eat. Often times we would sit and play cards and crack nuts, or work on a large puzzle while cracking nuts. In my family there would usually be a family gift from Julenissen (Santa) under the tree, with a large puzzle, that would take the whole family all of Christmas to complete. I seem to remember 5000 pieces was a normal size, at least when we got a little older.
Today’s cone has angelic music and a gorgeous little blue eyed Ellen Clapsaddle cherub:
