Christmas Pickle — Everybody knows the story of the Christmas pickle. You don't? Well then, here's the Cliff Notes version. A symbol of good luck, the Christmas pickle is the last to be placed on the tree Christmas Eve. Whoever finds the Christmas pickle in the morning is rewarded with an extra gift from Saint Nick. This tradition is to encourage children to appreciate all of the ornaments on the tree, as they represent special memories and meaning from years past.
