Have you heard of the Christmas pickle tradition? Many families have Christmas traditions that are unique to that family. The anticipation of these holiday traditions is half the fun. Whether it is as simple as trimming the tree together, choosing who gets to place the star/angle/Christmas hat each year, finding little elf gifts, or some other homespun Christmas tradition, they make the holidays more festive and more fun! Today, I am going to share the Christmas pickle story and tell you all about the how the Christmas tree pickle ornament works. This post is brought to you by The Christmas Pickle Tradition.
The Christmas Pickle Story
The Christmas pickle tradition is supposed to have origins in Germany but in fact, the German Christmas pickle legend seems to be just a legend without much to back it up. Whatever the origins, the Christmas pickle ornament has become a very beloved tradition in many families! The image below tells the full Christmas pickle story of how the Christmas pickle ornament comes into play and what it is used for.
How Does The Christmas Pickle Tradition Work?
This holiday tradition may or may not be new to your family but it is fun either way! Each year, a Christmas pickle ornament gets left out with Santa’s cookies and each year, the first person who spots the pickle ornament on the tree in the morning after Santa has come, gets an extra little gift! It is just one more Christmas Tradition to add to the fun and anticipation. I actually heard of it for the first time last year, and my kids loved it!
