Do you know about the Christmas pickle ornament tradition with German connections? Hide the pickle ornament on the tree and whoever finds it first gets a special gift! Great tradition to start with your family!

    Not so, dear Rachel! There is dispute about the German origin, but the tradition is very real. Some say it began in the 1890s in conjunction with German glass ornaments being imported to America. However, during the 16th century, well-off families often decorated Christmas trees with fruits, veggies, and sweets where the pickle was sure to make an appearance, just without the game! Others attribute the story to a German immigrant fighting in the Civil War who was captured and imprisoned in Georgia. Starving, he asked his guard for any kind of food he could find and obliged him with a pickle. The soldier said that single pickle gave him hope of survival and supposedly he used the pickle ornament game as a tradition in his household every Christmas! It's amazing the path history can travel!

    Bologna! Our German immigrant friends laughed when we asked about it and said its a made up story.

    It is still a wonderful thought and since we weren't there, we'll never know. However, it's a thought now and a wonderful one to inspire "bahumbugs" to be a little nicer during this holiday season! :)

    Merry Christmas, Jodee:)

When I saw the post about these crystal balls, I was inspired to put my own photos inside clear ornaments, rather than stock graphics. My kids had fun posing for the pictures, and they laugh at their unique ornaments. I think these ornaments would be equally (if not more entertaining) if you were to use the photo of a favorite celebrity, sports team, or any other personality.
