It’s almost a custom these days to wish ‘Merry Christmas’ with Christmas gifts. The current tradition of giving gifts on Christmas came into popular practice following the Three Wise Men’s (Magi) gifts to baby Jesus. Gift-giving during Christmas is primal to the age-old tradition of Christmas, and this took larger proportions slowly through the years with the rise of consumerism. Now if you come to think of it, today’s Christmas is really impaired without those big boxes in colorful wrappers tied up with glistening ribbons and piled up at the foot of the Christmas evergreen, those red stockings chock-a-block with Santa’s givings, those warm cards displayed on the mantle and many more sweet Christmas surprises. Evidently Christmas gifts have become integral to our Christmas holidays! Every Christian bears the spirit of giving and sharing on Christmas.
