Miniature Christmas Pickle Ornaments

pickle ornamentHave you heard of pickle ornaments? I think they’re fantastic, especially because they’re offbeat and unique. I was browsing through Amazon looking for any last minute Christmas gifts, and I came across these bright green pickle ornaments. At first, I thought it was just a one-off. But, when I searched for more pickle ornaments, I found a TON. It’s apparently a “thing”.

Do you like pickles? Do you like ornaments? This could be your lucky day! I love pickles, too, but I never thought about the possibility of putting them on my tree. Here’s why I’d start decorating with them:

  1. I used to live in Germany and I ate a lot of pickles there. I loved my time there and eating pickles reminds me of that.
  2. Pickles are green. Green is one of the most popular Christmas colors so a pickle ornament will match any tree.
  3. Stuff inspired by pickles are quirky enough to collect. Don’t be THAT person who collects something so common as a cow or a rooster or a clown. Pickles are the way to go!
  4. A friend just brought it to my attention that it sounds naughty! That makes these ornaments even more fantastic.

Hey, if you can’t have a sense of humor during the Holiday Season, when can you? 😉 Here are my top choices.
