The Famous German Christmas Pickle in Glass Jar Holiday Ornament Set
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 to find the pickle traditionally gets good luck for the whole year. Both the jar and pickle come ready to hang on a gold cord.
