On Christmas eve, before you go to bed, hide the Christmas pickle tree decoration among the branches on your Christmas tree. On Christmas morning, announce a pickle hunt! The first to find it will have good luck in the coming year.
According to tradition, if a child is the first person to find the pickle, they will get an extra present. If it’s an adult, they get good luck. But you can choose what the finder of the lucky pickle will get in your home!
The Christmas pickle, or Weihnachtsgurke, is a popular American Christmas tradition that took off in the 1880s. It’s called a ‘Weihnachtsgurke’ because, according to American legend it’s a German tradition. However, in Germany, it’s thought of as an American tradition.
There are some who think that the German associations came from the rise in popularity of imported German glass ornaments in the late 1800s – many of which were shaped like fruit. The true origins of the pickle itself are unknown, but there can be no doubt it’s a fun new tradition to try with your family!
The Weihnachtsgurke comes in its very own Christmas pickle jar, nestled in straw to keep it safe.
