The Christmas Pickle - Michigan, USA

This tradition hails from Berrien Springs, Michigan, where each Christmas a pickle, known as the Weihnachtsgurke, is hidden in the Christmas tree among all the tinsel. While it is believed to be a German tradition, most Germans have never heard of it. However, the first child who manages to find the pickle on the tree wins an additional gift, cash, or the honour of opening the first present.
