Legend of the Pickle Christmas Ornament measures about 2 3/4 inches tall.
The Pickle Legend is an old tradition from Germany and is fun for the whole family. Parents tuck away in the branches of the Christmas tree a tiny green gherkin pickle ornament hidden and ready for the children to find. The legend say 'hunt for it search for it but your hands must be behind and do not touch the tree or you will lose the prized in mind'. The winner of the green that is the child that finds the little pickle ornament has a special present to open. This is a fun family tradition from yesteryear and those children that do not find the little pickle this year know they will have next year to find the Pickle in the Green
