Santa Pickle Wooden German Ornament
Give the Christmas pickle hunt extra joy when this smiling Santa pickle is found!
Tradition of the Pickle Ornament
According to Christmas tradition, the pickle brings good luck and was the last ornament placed on the Christmas tree.
On Christmas morning the first child to find the pickle was rewarded with an extra little gift left by St. Nicholas.
This tradition encouraged the children to appreciate all the ornaments on the Christmas tree, rather than hurrying to see what St. Nick had left for them.
