I'm guessing the tradition of giving gifts for Christmas started with the wise men bringing gifts for baby Jesus. But why do we still do it? It's sort of fun I guess but I would rather not participate in the commercial Christmas but instead celebrate Jesus's birthday (which I will do too!). I think people would think I was crazy and ungrateful if I didn't buy them gifts. Any other anti-gift givers out there who feel they have to go along with it just to please their loved ones?
