Re: Re: [GRD] Re: OT Christmas tree

I have been looking all over for a pickle ornament! Hope I can find it short of Amana Colonies!

Noreen: I think the Christmas pickle is a German custom--the Amana Colonies here in Iowa are a sect of German immigrants from the 1800's and it is a custom widely practiced (or at least marketed now that the Amana's are largely a tourist industry) there. We have a little tiny glass one (about 1" long) that we hide for the kids on our tree...they love the hunt! And the extra goody they get for being the first one to find it!
