The Christmas Pickle

The first person to find the Christmas Pickle hidden on the tree gets... what?

At this point you're either ready with the answer or have no idea what we're talking about. Frankly, we had no idea either until we received our first order of glass pickles. The Christmas Pickle is an Old World Christmas Tradition, handed down to us by Salusa Glassworks.

Traditionally, the first person to find the Christmas Pickle hidden in the tree gets a little something extra. In some families, the finder can open the first gift on Christmas Eve, while other families give an extra gift to the lucky pickle person.

We were told this is a German tradition, but one of our colleagues thinks it's entirely made up.

What do you think? Do you hide a Christmas Pickle in your tree? Do you think it's hogwash? Please weigh in!
