German Christmas Tradition
Old 12-15-2006, 12:46 PM
 

My first grade class just completed our decoration based on the legend of the pickel ornament. It is said that a pickle was the last thing placed on the Christmas tree and the adult that finds it has good luck the next year and the child that finds it gets an extra gift from St. Nick. It was also a way to encourage children to look at the beautifully decorated tree before diving into their gifts. We made ours from construction paper and added google eyes and a santa type hat using cotton balls to add a festive feeling. They are hanging throughout our halls with an explanation posted at different areas so visitors and other classes can understand why pickles are hanging from the ceilings. Each one is just as cute and different as can be.
