Sure, there are a lot of different traditions that we all seem to celebrate—some traditional and some unique. One tradition that we’ve grown to love over the years is of the Christmas Pickle. Often attributed to Swiss and German tradition, a single pickle ornament would be hung on the Christmas tree. The child who would find the pickle would be chosen to either receive a special gift or prize.

In this piece, you see that Santa is busy at work not only delivering toys, candy, fruits and nuts, but also has the famous Christmas Pickle ready to be hidden.

This piece, originally introduced in 2002, will be available while the supply of 30 is in stock. Act quickly so that you can be the one to find that pickle tradition!

This piece has been re-issued for our 30th anniversary in 2014, with only 30 having been made available.
