Is Christmas time, and we love it! How about you?
Christmas is one of those seasons that the majority of the world celebrates. One of the things we love the most about Christmas is the awesome traditions that come with the holiday.
The gift exchange is maybe one of the most popular ones, but Do you know where it comes from?
You may know that Christmas has its origins in a Romanic tradition: Saturnalia, celebrated between the 17th and 24th of December, in this celebration in honor of Saturno the god of agriculture, the citizens used to have huge fests with food and presents .
According to this tradition the presents used to be laurel bouquets, because they mean good luck.
The origin of the exchange of gifts is also related to the ones given to Jesus, frankincense, myrrh, and gold.
The historical data suggest that in most of the countries for the X century the gift exchange tradition was already strongly practiced.
We think that it doesn’t matter where the tradition comes from, the essential part is the powerful joy that the gifts can bring to everyone, and of course, we are glad to had leave behind the laurel bouquets.
