The festive season of gift giving is upon us and brands are spamming us with emails on the spirit of gift giving and how their products make the best gift (just like I am doing right now).
This morning I was looking at one of those emails and it made me wonder about the history of the gift and this is what I found out.
Gift giving dates back thousands of years as far back as humans can remember.
Also, during the ancient ceremonies of Saturnalia, which were celebrated for seven days beginning on December 17, Romans believed that their generosity of trading gifts would bring them good fortune in the coming year.
