I once bought a pickle ornament for my niece thinking it cute because she loves pickles. She wasn’t impressed, and honestly neither was anyone in my family. A pickle for the Christmas tree? I later learned it’s legend where an adult hides a pickle-shaped ornament in the boughs of the tree after it is decorated. On Christmas morning, the children search the limbs of the tree, trying to be the first to find the pickle. The one who finds it gets an extra present, or, as in years past, a healthy and happy year. Whether you love traditions, wish for a healthy and happy year, or simply need a reason to give an extra gift, we have so many lovely ornaments to choose from – even pickles! ~Nancy F.
