Legend: "A pickle used as decoration on a Christmas tree seems odd at first, but it is an old German tradition. It is customary to hide a pickle among the branches of the tree on Christmas Eve. The first child on Christmas Day to find the Christmas pickle receives an extra gift! The reason for three sizes of the pickle are for the ages of the children. The largest pickles are for the toddlers. As they grow up the pickle size gets smaller." - Inge-Glas
