History of Christmas Gift Giving
Did you know that giving gifts at Christmas time
is a relatively new tradition in this country? Yep!
It seems like it's been around since the
beginning, but that's just not the case. In fact,
the pilgrims who came to America didn't even
celebrate Christmas because they thought the
holiday too decadent.
In the early 1800's, Americans began celebrating
Christmas again, not as a boisterous party, but
as a solemn and private family event. Victorian
standards of the day were being relaxed and
families saw this as an opportunity to lavish
attention and gifts on their children without
spoiling them. (yeah, right!)

1820, Santa Claus becomes popular, Charles
Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol' is widely read, and
real live Santas are being visited by children in
The rest, as they say, is history!
