My Gifts From My CoAuthor Susan April Elwood

Last Christmas Susan April Elwood my coauthor in Edmund Pickle Chin, A Donkey Rescue Story gave me two gifts. They were memorable in that one was a ‘Christmas Pickle” and one was a pewter donkey, both were ornaments meant for hanging on the Christmas tree. Thank you, Susan! 🙂

Donkey Susan gave me! So nice!

  2. Susan’s gifts go perfectly with Edmund Pickle Chin!. I’m curious, what do the words say on the package with the pickle? I love this book too, Clar! 🙂

        Here you go Tracy, I’ll copy it down for you. It doesn’t have anything to do with Edmund really.

        “The Tradition of the CHristmas Pickle”
        “It’s Christmas, a time of jingle bells, stockings, presents under the tree and family traditions. Celebrate the holidays with a time honored, German tradition and have fun with your family for years to come! Following an Old World custom, parents waited until Christmas eve to hide a small pickle ornament on the Christmas tree, tucking it out of sight among the branches. On Christmas morning, the first family member to spot the pickle was rewarded with a special blessing for the coming year and received the first present from under the tree. ”

        Susan meant for me to have an ornament but I have saved it like you see it now in the package. We did without a tree last year. At our age the fun is in seeing our grandson enjoy it but he was unable to come to our house. Maybe next year!

        Take Care!

        • Hi Clar, thanks so much for taking the time to type up the “Christmas Tradition of the Pickle”. I love learning about different traditions. We didn’t put a tree either as there are no young kiddies around to enjoy it. Yes, maybe next year. Hugs. 🙂
