Holiday Traditions Around The World – Christmas Pickle, Germany

December 24, 2018 / Category: Special Occasions

Does your family have a Christmas pickle? Where did this Christmas tradition come from?

Before December 25th,  a glass pickle ornament is hidden in the branches of a Christmas tree. The first one to find the pickle on Christmas morning gets a special treat!

This tradition has become popular around the holiday season in the United States. Interesting enough, no one truly knows where this tradition stems from. It is said that it started back in Germany.

Whatever your holiday traditions may be we hope you have a great Christmas Eve spent with family and close-loved ones!
