You may ask, what is the origin of the pickle ornament? Some say it was a marketing tactic that coincided with German holiday imports to help push sales of these new goods. Tradition deems that the first person to find the hidden pickle (which should also be the last ornament hung on a tree) gets an extra gift- or good luck? - we're not really sure, but what we do know is, no tree truly seems complete without a pickle on it. Shiny, glass. Sold individually.
