The Pickle Ornament
My family celebrates Christmas. Every year when everyone is home for the holidays, a big part of that tradition is to decorate the tree together. Even if it's the night before Christmas, my mom will wait until everyone is home before we decorate.
Well the pickle ornament of course. It's actually an old German tradition that my family pick up while we were living in Germany. Essentially the parents hide the pickle ornament in the tree after all the other decorations are up. Like IN the tree. So it's SUPER hard to find.
Me and my two siblings rush back into the tree to find the pickle ornament. The tradition is that if you find the pickle ornament first then you get an extra gift for christmas. We never really count our gifts, so we are really just fighting for bragging rights. It's still gets super intense.
This year, my older brother found the pickle :(
Every year for Christmas Eve my dad makes a special soup. It's called Smoke Troutwder. It's a chowder-- but made with trout instead. It usually takes him a couple days to smoke the trout, and to have everything perfect.
I don't know how this became a tradition in my family, but I'm always excited to have Troutwder.
What are your family traditions for the Holidays?
Christmas is so close! Happy Holiday's everyone!
