Legendary Pickle


LEGEND OF THE CHRISTMAS PICKLE
A pickle is used as decoration on the Christmas tree seems odd at first, but it is an old German tradition. When decorating the Christmas tree, it is traditional to hang the pickle last, hidden among the branches. The first child on Christmas Day to find the Christmas pickle receives a special blessing for the year and an extra gift! Great tradition to share with your family this year and for years to come!

Legend has it that the observant child who found it on Christmas Day was blessed with a year of good fortune...and a special gift. Now begin the fun of this tradition for your family.  Whimsically packaged in a pickle jar!  2-1/2" ornament.
