You learn something new everyday! -Hide The Christmas Pickle-

Standard

Roman The Christmas Pickle Ornament

It’s true, that you learn something new everyday, whether you know it or not. Today, on facebook I seen a few people talking about, “The Christmas Pickle” and if everyone does this as a tradition, or not. I was clueless, with a few others on what, “The Christmas Pickle” was all about. It’s a pickle ornament, that you hide on the Christmas Tree. Whoever, finds it first gets a prize! I thought that was really cool, and would be fun to do! I’m sure this pickle would be hard to find!

The Christmas Pickle, has stirred up quite some controversy on it’s place of origin. It has been told many times, to be a German tradition. However, the Germans do not celebrate the coming of Saint Nick, the same time as the Americans. The traditional German belief, is you leave your boot, or shoe out on December 5th. When you awake on December 6th, there will be a goody in your shoe. Unless, you’ve been bad, which you will then receive a rod.

To play, “The Christmas Pickle” or “Hide the Pickle” you must first purchase a pickle ornament that you can find at most department stores, such as, Dillard’s, Macys, JcPenney, etc. Most of these will be made of glass so be careful!

On Christmas Eve, after the children are in bed sound asleep. Get the ornament, and hide it in the tree, and make sure you stand back to see if you can see it. If you can see it, then hide it in a better spot! *NOTE* Green trees work the best, because it’s hard to hide the pickle in a white tree.

When your child/children wake up, on Christmas morning, have them look for the pickle, somewhere in the decorated tree. The first one to find the pickle wins! The prize is usually something special like, an extra present, or cash!

About Mommy's Little Rugrat Princess

What can I say I love my family!! I love God who's been great to me throughout the years and helped me get pass the rocky road I was headed down. He's blessed my family and I in so many ways that words can't even describe. I thank God for everything in my life especially blessing me with such a wonderful family. I love deals, freebies, samples, coupons, sweepstakes, contests, instant win games, products, reviews,and of course my favorite GIVEAWAYS !!! I love learning about new products that will probably never reach my hometown. This is why I love giveaways so much, by winning something that no one has ever heard of or ever seen here in this little town. I love sharing with them all about the product and what it does. Then their always wondering where they can get their own!! :) I love dealing with companies and learning about how they started. I think it's very interesting learning about their background and where they came from. What can I say I'm a simple girl from a small town who loves the 21st century! I've only been doing this since January, 2011 and have saved my family a lot whether it may be food, toys, clothes, hygiene products, household items, or just going out for a family outing. I found this is my passion and I love doing what I do. I love writing and hope this will be an awesome blog for you!! Well, that's all about me for now! ;)
