Merry Christmas Eve. Does anyone else participate In the German tradition of the pickle? The last ornament placed on the tree is a glass pickle hidden deep in the branches. The first child to find it gets an extra gift and good fortune for the next year. Oh and at our house serious bragging rights. What's your tradition?
My wife is half German I will have to give her a pickle. Ornament. - splashphotoCM   885.6 #166 12-24-11 11:00AM Like(8)  Reply
