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 #200 12-24-11 11:00AM Like(8)  Reply

I saw a pickle ornament at Target, NOW I know why they make pickle ornaments. I thought, someone really needs to love pickles to put it on the tree. Thanks for sharing that tradition - MsDisneyLove   168.2 #2405 12-24-11 9:44AM Like(1)  Reply
