First, people yesterday asked about the Christmas pickle, so here you go. This was posted on a website called whychristmas.com, which I totally would have recommended yesterday, if I had found it in time. SO COOL!
In the 1880s Woolworth stores started selling glass ornaments imported from Germany and some were in the shape of various fruit and vegetables. It seems that pickles must have been among the selection!
Around the same time it was claimed that the Christmas Pickle was a very old German tradition and that the pickle was the last ornament hung on the Christmas tree and then the first child to find the pickle got an extra present.
However, the claim that it’s an old German tradition seems to be a total myth!
…So it’s most likely that an ornament salesmen, with a lot of spare pickles to sell, invented the legend of the Christmas Pickle!WhyChristmas.com, The Christmas Pickle’s History
I don’t even remember what-all is in this. You know how I do.
I know it has chopped bacon; leftover corn, carrots, and potatoes; and some kind of leftover meat. Probably chicken, but who knows? Maybe the tag end of a pork chop?
Anyway, it was good.
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about bacon. If bacon is anathema to you, write something negative about bacon.
