How did gift giving on Christmas start?
People are selfish. People give gifts every year because they always have, but how did it start? I mean, a few families exchanging gifts or even a single church could start a tradition this big…. So how’d it start. I’m not saying I don’t want to give gifts, or that I’m a scrouge, but I can’t fathom how it started. (and don’t tell me Jesus. He got gold frankencense (sp) and myrr (sp). But that didn’t make people choose unanimously to give gifts to each other)
