The Christmas Pickle

Nothing reminds me of my German childhood like the traditional Christmas pickle. When decorating the tree on Christmas Eve, my "mutti und vatti" would hide a pickle somewhere on the tree. If either my sister or I found the pickle on Christmas morn, then St. Nikolaus would give us a special present of either Pfeffernussen or Weinachtgeld. This Christmas morn, both my daughers will be looking for the Christmas pickle under our tree. Oh, those joyous ethnic Christmases.

Excellent, love it! » »
