Christmas Pickle Legend

The “Christmas Pickle Legend” states that Germans hang a Christmas pickle ornament on their Christmas Tree.  It is the last ornament they place on the tree.  On Christmas morning, the child who finds the Christmas Pickle Ornament will get an extra gift.

There are many similar variations on the Christmas Pickle story, but the funny thing is that this German tradition has never been heard of by most Germans.  I think someone made up this humorous Christmas Pickle tradition at some point.

If you would like a Christmas Pickle of your very own, check out the one’s available on eBay below:
