It was a few years ago when I first heard about the Christmas Pickle. Being my family likes to try new things, we decided we should have one on our tree. First though, I wanted to do some research about the meaning and origin.
So, what exactly is the deal with the Christmas Tree pickle? Is it a German thing?
Well, it's great of you have kids or like to welcome new traditions into your life!
Basically it's this: you hide the Christmas pickle in the tree on Christmas Eve and the first person to find it on Christmas morning gets good luck all year, and a special gift.
