The Hidden Pickle
Over the Christmas holidays my daughter bought a beautiful Christmas ornament.
A bright green Glass Pickle!!!
I loved it so much I bought 4! One for our family and the other 3 as of course Christmas gifts.
The story behind the “Pickle” is that according to German tradition, the pickle brings good luck and was the last ornament placed on the tree. On Christmas morning the first child to find the pickle was rewarded with an extra little gift by St. Nicholas. This tradition encouraged the children to appreciate all the ornaments on the tree, rather than hurrying to see what St. Nicholas had left form them.
Love the story behind this ornament and it looks pretty darn good on the Christmas tree! 😀
