The Story goes . . . on the night of Christmas Eve, after the children have gone to bed, the “Pickle Ornament” is hidden deep in the branches of the Christmas tree. In the morning, the first child to find the pickle ornament, receives a special gift from St. Nick! If it is an adult who finds the pickle, they are to have good luck throughout the coming year!
The tradition of the Christmas Pickle began in Germany in the early 1600’s and has continued to be a tradition to present day, most especially in the USA.
