Have you heard the story of the Christmas pickle?
According to Bronner's,
the world's largest Christmas store in Frankenmuth, Mich., it's an old German tradition to hide a glass pickle ornament on the tree after the children go to bed on Dec. 24.
The first one to spy the ornament on Christmas morning gets an extra gift from St. Nick -- or so the legend goes.
