It’s that time of the year again.
Whether you are a Christmas lover or you are the Grinch, you can’t escape from the classic Christmas gift giving tradition.
Gift giving is actually a pagan tradition related to Winter Solstice.
In ancient Rome, the Romans used to organize private gift giving during celebrations in honour of the god Saturn, which occurred in December, immediately after the Winter Solstice.
Gift-giving costum started to be linked to Christianity in the IV century AD, when Jesus’s birth was conventionally set at 25th December and the story of Three Magi and later that of Saint Nicholas, became part of Christmas tradition.
Saint Nicholas was a bishop, famous for his generosity: it is said that he used to help needy people giving gifts to them. The historical figure of the saint inspired the story of Santa Claus.
Choosing Christmas presents is mostly an emotional act, related to what we feel for the recipient, so it is very difficult to draw up a generic Christmas gifts guide.
When it comes to buying a gift, our simple, maybe common, but hopefully useful advice is to keep in mind what is your genuine wish for Christmas Day and for the upcoming New Year for your beloved.
