Christmas gifts

The exchanging of Christmas presents can be traced back to an ancient Roman custom of gift-giving which was practised at Saturnalia, which also fell at this time of the year.

When this tradition was Christianised, it is said to relate to the gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh that the three Magi had carried with them from the East when they traveled to pay homage to the newborn Jesus Christ.
