For more than 100 years, Americans have held to the tradition of the Christmas pickle, but this practice is much more popular in some parts of the country than in others. In fact, some in the United States have never adopted the tradition. For the center of the excitement, visit Berrien Springs, Michigan. This town of 2000 earned the title of Christmas Pickle Capital of the World from the organization Pickle Packers International. It fully embraces this title with an annual Christmas festival. But, you don’t have to live in Michigan to enjoy the pickle tradition at Christmas. If you haven’t already done so, try it out this year, for a little extra holiday fun.
