Subject: [GERMAN-LIFE] Pickle Ornament
Date: Fri, 29 Dec 2000 08:02:19 EST
Before everyone puts up their ornaments, will you please notice if there is
an explanation for the tradition of the pickle ornament. On a few occasions,
I've had opportunities to ask about the tradition, and the Germans to whom I
have asked it, have shrugged their shoulders and suggested that it might be a
tradition in a specific part of German not indigenous to their own home area.
