Pickle Ornament


This classic glass Christmas pickle ornament is sure to add a festive flair to any tree.

Approx. 4.5″

No one is sure of the true origin of the Christmas Pickle.  Did it come from Old World Germany, with its tradition of glass blowing ornaments shaped like pickles?  Or perhaps it originated in America, during the Civil War when a kindly guard gifted a starving imprisoned soldier a pick to eat.  And after the war, that soldier hung a glass pickle in his family tree, as a reminder of the kindly guard.

Whatever its origin, the lucky person to find the Christmas Pickle, hidden in the branches of the Christmas tree, will have good luck for the rest of the year, and perhaps an extra present too.  Or so the legend claims.
