Interesting Christmas Info - Christmas Gifts

christmasDid you know that hanging presents on trees may have come from the Druids who believed the tree was the giver of all good things.

Gift-giving might be a tradition that was passed down from a very long time ago—before Christmas even existed—when the people who lived in what’s now Italy (Ancient Romans) gave gifts during winter but the tradition for giving gift did not become popular until the end of the middle age and beginning of the modern era.

Today, we give gifts at Christmas for our own reasons. For some, it is a way to celebrate the Christian holy day while for others, it is a special occasion to let family and friends know that you care.
