The pickle ornament was considered a special tree decoration by many families in Germany. There, the fir tree was decorated on Christmas Eve. It was always the last ornament to be hung on the Christmas tree, with the parents hiding it in the green boughs among the other ornaments.
When the children were allowed to view the tree on Christmas morning, they would begin gleefully searching for the pickle ornament. For they knew whoever first found that special ornament would receive an extra little gift left by St. Nicholas for the most observant child.
Continue the tradition in your home.
