"The Christmas Pickle. According to German tradition, the pickle brings good luck and was the last ornament placed on the tree. On Christmas morning the first child to find the gherkin was rewarded with an extra little gift left by St. Nicholas. This tradition encouraged children to appreciate all the ornaments on the tree, rather than hurrying to see what St. Nick had left for them."
