The tradition of the essigurke or the Dill as well call him, is pure pickle family fun. The custom started many years ago in Germany, where the pickle was the last ornament placed on the tree late on Christmas eve. The first child to find the pickle received a gift and adults were blessed with a year of good luck. Always found with a smirk, our Polish Dill is akin to all of his German essigurkes but of a slightly different brine. As JingleNog legend would have it, this swift footed Christmas pickle has kept families happily in search of him for many an eve. Our Dill delights in a game of find the pickle, and nothing gives him more of a tickle, than leaving you feeling like you are in a pickle or pickled in finding him!
