It is a quaint tradition that nobody wants to claim. Some say it is an old German tradition.
The Christmas pickle is not really a pickle at all. It is a pickle-shaped ornament that is the last one hung on the tree on Christmas Eve. The first child to find the Christmas pickle gets an extra gift from Saint Nicholas. Or so the so-called legend goes.

This year, Jordyn found the pickle ornament, Jack and Caleb could not be here on Sunday due to that darn tummy flu! Our little Christmas celebration was on last Sunday, so that the kids could travel this coming weekend. It will be very quiet around here on Christmas day!
