History of the Pickle Ornament

The pickle ornament was considered a very special tree decoration by many families in Germany. There, the fir tree was traditionally decorated on Christmas Eve. For good luck, the pickle always was the last ornament to be hung on the tree with the mother and father hiding it in the green boughs among the other ornaments. When the children were allowed to vie the splendor of the decorated tree on Christmas morning, they would gleefully begin searching for the pickle. They knew that whoever found that special ornament first would receive an extra little gift left by St. Nicholas for the most eager child.
