The Famous German Christmas Pickle in Glass Jar Holiday Ornament Set
From the Holiday Traditions Collection
This jar has a lot of history behind it so here's the pickle "legend". A very old Christmas eve tradition in Germany was to hide a pickle [ornament] deep in the branches of the family Christmas Tree. The parents hung the pickle last after all the other ornaments were in place. In the morning they knew the most observant child would receive an extra gift from St. Nicholas. The first adult who finds the pickle traditionally gets good luck for the whole year.
Both the jar and pickle come ready-to-hang on a gold cord
