Do you have a tradition that involves The Christmas Pickle?

Happiest faerie of VGF.

I know people that do the Christmas pickle but don't do it myself

It's always weird to me that people are like "YOU DON'T DO THE CHRISTMAS PICKLE I THOUGHT YOUR FAMILY WAS GERMAN" when the Christmas pickle is very not-German (maybe German-American but it's not FROM Germany)

We do it. Every year my family has a pickle gift. My mom hides the pickle ornament in the middle of the night (or just the day before because my sister and I don't live there anymore). On Christmas morning, my younger cousin, sister, and I all look for the pickle. Whoever finds it gets the pickle gift, though it's usually a game for the whole family to enjoy. I have only found the pickle one goddamn time, so it has become an activity for my sister to gloat. Haha.
